Presentation

Located in the Aiguilles Rouges Nature Reserve, the lake is often frozen over. A unique view of the Massif and its Aiguilles. Private mid-mountain chalet-refuge destroyed by an avalanche and rebuilt in 1990.

From the village of Argentière, take the path on the right in the Bois du Plagnolet. Through a series of switchbacks, climb to the Baraque Forestière (1,865 m). A rise above the forest leads to the Chalets des Chéserys (1,998 m) 2 h 30. You can then continue your way to the Lac Blanc, a little higher.

It is possible to reach the Lac des Chéserys from the top of the Flégère cable car or the Col des Montets.
