near Le Lioran, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes (France)

This is quite a spectacular walk.

Tthe climb is steep and once you get out of the woods even steeper and you will have to use your hands at some places to get higher on the rocks, but the walk is never really diificult and the views are fantastic.

Once you are at the highest point you will stay more or less at the same level for the greatest part of the walk, enjoying beautiful views all the time.

The walk can be shortened by taking the path down to the Refuge, but then you will miss out on views that are still to come once you cross the next col.

Most pictures taken looking back because of the sun.

This really is a very beautiful walk.

    The steep climb in the beginning is tough but well worth it!
