  • Of good walking shoes, a little practice... and presto! forward for the ascent of the spinner. The efforts will be widely rewarded by the spectacular show which will be offered to you. The time will be suspended.

  • Very nice hike to do! The highest around Lake Annecy! Allow 3 hours to climb from the cottage of the aulp.

  • After many ascents, this wonderful mountain that dominates the Lake of annecy, is a beautiful place, but still dangerous for those who do not respect the mountain, or nature in general.
