Hike along the Petit Balcon Nord: Le Tour-Argentière

in Argentière

A path linking Le Tour to Argentière on the north side at a height of around 200m above the Valley.

Take the path from Le Rocher Nay, leave the path to Le Bisme on your right which goes down towards Montroc, and cross over the Le Bisme bridge. Take the path straight ahead, which goes gently uphill through a beautiful forest; ignore the paths of Le Peclerey and Le Grand-Chantet on your left. You get lovely glimpses of Le Tour and Montroc. Carry on downhill into a larch wood above the hamlet of Le Planet. Ignore the paths on the right and left and instead take the downhill path to the bottom of the moraine. There, turn right onto Chemin des Rambles and then Chemin de la Moraine which takes you to Argentière.
