LESSE, one of the most romantic of the smaller rivers of Belgium.
Another curious natural feature of the Lesse is that on reaching the hill of Han it disappears underground, reappearing about 1 m.
The Lesse receives altogether in its short course the water of thirteen tributaries.
The numerous affluents of these rivers, such as the Lys, Dyle, Dender, Ourthe, Ambleve, Vesdre, Lesse and Semois, provide a system of waterways almost unique in Europe.
The Chiers, the Semois, the Lesse, the Sambre, the Ourthe and the Roer are its most important tributaries.
