About : Hike: les Aiguillettes

You will have the chance to get close to the geological folds which are unique in their shape and composition. An aerial atmosphere and yet without difficulty on this well-marked path. In the monthly bulletin of the Linnean Society of Lyon dated 1938, the chapter on the great excursions in Oisans began like this: "If there was one excursion that was eventful and full of unforeseen events, it was the one to the Sabot pass". In 2022, we could use the same adjectives for this path leading to the Aiguillettes. Indeed, this hike conceals many treasures that you will discover as you go along.

You will hear the marmots whistling, watch the slopes carefully, you will see them.
Marmots will whistle once to warn their community of an aerial danger, and several times to warn of a terrestrial danger such as a hiker or a fox, or a wolf that often passes through this area. You will often see griffon vultures circling the peaks. Be attentive, because during this hike, the fauna is present, on the ground, in the sky, in the distance.
