From the freshness of the larch forest to the heat of the sun on the final slope, the Tourettes mountain-pass links the Durance valley to that of the Drac. It offers a spectacular view of the Champsaur and the surrounding massifs. The watchful eye "armed with binoculars" will observe the chamois which populate the slopes of the Dent mountain or will stealthily observe the fluttering of the Wall Creeper.
Take the Rabioux pastoral path to the Muandes carpark. Follwo the forest path on foot which penetrates the heart of the Ecrins National Park, pass near to the Charançons gîte then the Serre chalets. Then the path crosses the larch groves, cross the Rabioux torrent and loop to the right, leading without difficulty to the Tourettes mountain pass. Return using the same itinerary.
Leave the N 94 to get to the centre of Châteauroux. Follow the signposts marked "Vallée du Rabioux" and "Cascade de la Pisse".
