A little paradise on the Emparis plateau at 1540 meters. A step not to miss on the GR 54 "Tour de l'Oisans" in the Ecrins National Park overlooking the Meije, not to mention the welcome of the guardian !

About : Refuge Les Clôts

From the car park at Les Aymes, follow the path marked in red and white (variant of the GR 54 path): the balcony trail makes its way above the Lac
du Chambon before climbing up across the meadows. From there, it is possible either to follow the trail to the right that joins the refuge (adding ½ hour), or to carry straight on directly to Les Clots. Along the way, and near the refuge, depending on the time of your visit, you may see marmots, chamois and butterflies, and depending on the season, feast your eyes and nose with lavender and other orange lilies. You’ll also have a chance to admire the waterfalls surrounding the hut, gushing out of a petrified fountain, forming concretions of tuf. The site is under a biotope protection order, so please stay on the path to avoid damaging this geological wonder.

Juste next to the refuge, a cabin has been converted into an ecomuseum : its visit willmake an ideal end to your passage through the discovery trail, and you will know everything about the flora, fauna, and life in the Emparis pastures. The easy access to the hut and its surrounding environment make it an ideal choice for a first overnight stay with children or for meeting up with friends.
