Season:
Lac du Charvin, a natural high altitude lake, located at an altitude of about 200m.
This natural lake is located in a magnificent cirque at the foot of Mont Charvin. It is a unique place, which requires protective measures.

Climb a little more towards the Goenne ridge and you will come across a beautiful view of the Mont Blanc and Beaufortain mountains.

Meet our mountaineers in summer and come back with a good cheese from our mountains. 2 mountain pastures are located on this path:
The Aulp of Fier d'En Haut
Aulp De Fier d'En Bas
Please respect the parks and fences, making sure to close it behind you.
