An easy, half-day excursion starting from the Lautaret pass, in landscaped high mountain surroundings that have views of La Meije, perched glaciers and the Romanche valley.
Descriptif Le Belvédère de l’homme
From the car park below the Lautaret pass, head towards Laurichard where you will quickly come to a crossing. Leave the Laurichard footpath and turn right. Cross a footbridge and progressively walk up the hillside. The footpath crosses over several streams, eutrophic tall herbs and shrub zones and leads to a more open area - where sheep sometimes graze before reaching the Belvedere de l'homme. Do not go over the barrier, turn back to return to the start point.
Welcome: Difficulté = Very easy
