  • A very nice hike to recommend for any hiker. The running Board with its many lakes worth all the efforts made to achieve this.

  • Departing from the hamlet of the Pra, the ascent is steep from the outset with many and short stony laces. Quickly, you will reach a small plateau where we saw the first chamois and marmots after crossing a small refreshing forest where arises a small torrent. The hike continues within landscapes that surround us, mountains to the soft green meadows contrasting with the snow that still, scree slopes to your left and the bottom of the Valley in drop. Pretty impressive all the same. Arrival in the forest houses for a little respite with a flowerbed in the shades of blue... That nature is beautiful! Last climb switchbacks, 5 Lakes there are beads. Remains to reach the refuge along the Lake in which drain two rushing cascades almost deafening to fill our gourds. Descent to the shore for lunch on a thick bed of Nice grass. Beware of the Sun, it is treacherous, and the insolation of which I was the victim proves. Furthermore, my group has not escaped to sunburn. So, hat, cream solar and mandatory long sleeves! Return by the same route. Count 6 h round trip with a steady pace. Perfectly signposted route. Enjoy!

  • Vens Lakes, the Blue Lake and Green Lake are wonderful! It is without doubt the most beautiful Ballad of the massif of Mercantour
