From the Danchere car park, take the trail through the village (indicated as GR54.) At the end of the village, you have 2 options:the path on the right side of the river, ascends more gently and is more varied. The left side is more direct, climbing more steeply through the shaded forest. It’s one of the most beautiful places of the Oisans … at your arrival at the Lake you will be welcomed by marmots!
