  • At the bottom (or top) to val Veny, parked the car (or better, given the crowd, got off the bus traveling from Courmayeur) we start with the bar of The Visaille, and, with a climb of an hour and a half not challenging you come to Lake Combal. Continuing rights to the refuge Elisabetta at the base of the Pyramid Calcares or towards Lee white glacier, to the right destination. From this point on the climb is a bit more challenging, steep and sunny and after about twenty minutes, he finally arrives at the Miage from where the view extends to the horizon and you can see the glacier and the Lakes (unfortunately, compared to years ago, reduced to glacier retreat). Not to be missed.

  • Lake Miage is, without doubt, a pleasant and not very long walk in beautiful surroundings. The start of the actual tour takes place from the bar that (thankfully) prevents vehicle access to farm road that goes from La Visaille, where to leave your car. We are obviously in Val Veny. After walking in a steady climb for about an hour, we came across the bridge to Combal and Lake. Leaving the bridge on the left and go straight, after about 15 minutes you will reach the bar restaurant called "Cabane du Combal." Short break to recuperate and then again in March (short) to reach the Lake. The climb along the short but steep bordering the Lake, Moraine, it runs fine, there is nothing that can create danger. In a short time you will reach what remains of Lake Miage. Currently three small ponds and a larger one form the Lake which, by its characteristic, depending on the power it receives from above and glacier, changes its appearance. Unfortunately for some years the water level tends to fall steadily but, being in front of the front of the glacier that in his unstoppable and always moving, plunges into the basin below with frequent postings of blocks and debris of varying sizes, absolutely deserves to be there present. In 1996, there was a serious accident caused by falling into the Lake by a large ice floe and the resulting wave generated. About 30 tourists were involved, reporting injuries of various kinds. Finally, I would remind you that, during the summer, our destination, due to its ease in being able to reach and its always incomparable charm, is extremely popular.
