A beautiful hike beyond the Refuge de la Lavey up to a glacial lake, with magnificent high Alpine views.
Starting point: Refuge de la Lavey
Elevation gain: 604 m
Total duration: 2 hours
Distance: 2.5 km
From the hut, the path leaves the bottom of the valley, climbing sharply up the east-facing slope. The path passes close to the Entre Pierroux glacier, before turning south to the Lac des Bêches overlooking the valley.
DURING THE HIKE
From the lake, there are uninterrupted views over the Tête des Fétoules, Les Rouies and the Olan.
In early season, snow patches may remain at the top of the path.
There is a warden in the hut from mid-June to mid-September.
