    The spinner is a must hike around Annecy, for its very Alpine setting and its superb panorama at the top. Conditions: being able to make 1100-1200 m in altitude without difficulty, not to fear the vacuum. Since Montmin, caution upward, in the cliffs (crossings equipped with cables), especially when there's world (rock falls). I recommend this route to children. Since the Bottiere (watershed Thônes), the course is a lot less exposed, except of course to the level of the uppermost rock (called the Chair) common to all routes. Dizzying, "Chair" is very well equipped with cables, markets and a scale. Daily presence of ibex. Opportunity also to meet a Ptarmigan (Partridge of snow).

    The tournette deserves but cannot be improvised. Curious refrain because can be dangerous. Landscapes take your breath away (also the climb)

    Beautiful hike, climb hard and a bit of climbing on the end, but I recommend because we are well rewarded once arrived

    Great views, and a demanding hike. Doable in 1 day still, if you start early enough. A must-do around Annecy!

    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 😉

    A great family ride. A rise of about 2 hours but a superb panorama on arrival on Lake Annecy a beautiful ballad that I recommend

    A very nice view at the arrival, a hike over 3 hour walk but a magnificent panorama

    Very nice place highlight around the Lake... As has feet when skiing, this remains the best panoramic of the Jura at Mont Blanc via the vanoise and the Italy.
