Randonnée : La cheminée d’équilibre

A trail in the forest takes you to the orientation table. You dominate the valley and look over the dam Verney below. The panorama stretches from the plain of Bourg d'Oisans to Belledonne.

The path runs along the two sides separating the ridge that descends from Rissiou. At the passage of the stop, at Collet, one arrives at the place where the equilibrium chimney of the development of Grand'Maison emerges from the ground. To learn more about this development, Hydrelec's visit is essential. The view is superb across the Eau d'Olle valley and the Vaujany ski area, the Grandes Rousses massif, south of the plain of Bourg d'Oisans, the eastern slope of Belledonne.
