"In the middle of the summer, the valley exposed to the North can be very hot. That’s why I like to go out at sunrise in order to make the most of the cool early morning. just like the chamois who make the most of this calm moment in order to graze.. At 10 o’clock, most of them are sleeping and immobile, dozing and ruminating,you could almost say they are invisible!”
Cyril Coursier, heritage technician in Briançonnais
The unique marked trail starts from the carpark at the edge of Guisane. It goes up on the right bank, with a regular ascent to Pré Chausson then through Fontenil valley. After a slightly more difficult section, the lake is hiding under an overhang in the bottom of the valley. Return using the same itinerary in the opposite direction.
