Aiguillette des Houches par Alpages de Chailloux

in Les Houches
Presentation

A steep walk taking you into the Carlaveyron Nature Reserve. Wonderful sweeping views.

Departure from the Merlet park, near the entrance of the park on the Chamonix side, go up along the protection fences and take the Bel-Lachat and Brévent path on the right for 10 minutes. Leave it and go horizontally on 400 m and on the right to go up in the forest during half an hour: we find the path of Chailloux and the itinerary above.

Suggestion: Possibility to continue to Brévent over Bel-Lachat to go back down by Pierre Blanche.
