  • Hike to do if you are a Walker minimum! Two types of ascent, more or less responsible for summer tourists but pleasant nevertheless. View breathtaking at the top.

  • 6 of us did the hike from the lake to the top and camped overnight facing the Mont Blanc. Great views, beautiful wildlife, steep parts with some sections offering chains for help. The best hike around...  more »
  • Special mountain... on a lake. Everywhere where you will climb to her you will be amazed. This wildlife, refuges. Sometimes when you look at and the Summit out of the clouds she could pass for a 8000. Be well shod even when you are in the mountains, take care of yourself... It takes a little practice to climb it but do you pleasure

  • Beautiful place! The hike is a bit technical but the view is great!
  • Great views, and a demanding hike. Doable in 1 day still, if you start early enough. A must-do around Annecy!
  • HIGHLIGHT OF THIS AREA, IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND SE MERIT.

  • Even if we only went to the Chair. We're still up to 2100 meters and the view is just beautiful. A little (a lot) sports even when 😉
