The Tournette is a mountain in the Bornes Massif in Haute-Savoie, France. It is the highest of the mountains surrounding Lake Annecy and has a prominence of 1,514m, qualifying it as an Ultra.It is possible to drive most of the way up, parking at Chalet De L'Aulp. From here the summit can be reached via a well marked path in around 3 hours. The final third of the climb requires some scrambling, but there are chains and ladders in all the difficult sections.

  • A great hike, with different possible routes... Lake, or side Thônes... Predict, what matter the season, good shoes, and especially to stay safe in this wonderful place where some parts of the trail, on the side of Annecy, are including aerial, with the use of strings to climb the wall... the top part is impressive because of its access by a succession of scales... risk of dizziness

  • If you want a wonderful view of Lake Annecy hesitate not a climb to the Summit at 2350 m Tournette.Ce separates the Lake region and the region of Thônes homeland of the reblochon.2 hours of ascent has done in June, July and August.

  • a view was breath-a great panorama a bit long to go up initially, but the view is well worth the trip.
