Presentation

Further information

Dogs are not permitted as the path is in the Nature Reserve Les Aiguilles Rouges.

From the chairlift station, go to the right down to the Lac du Fouet. The path goes to the bottom of the Combe des Crochues. A traverse on the side leads to a rocky spur that you have to go around and which is a boundary for the Aiguilles Rouges Nature Reserve where the Lac Blanc is located. This traverse becomes ascending and, at the level of a big cairn, it joins the path coming from the Flégère which leads to the refuge and the lake.

More information available at the Tourist Office or the High Mountain Office and in our trail guide.
Warning : The conditions of the trails are likely to change, think to inform you before leaving.
