The Achard lake, a touch of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Beautiful mountain lake at 1,917 meters of altitude easily visible from the Infernet Pass and the Croix de Chamrousse in summer and covered with snow in winter.
You can discover it snowshoeing in winter. We can guess the outline of a main lake in the form of small filling lakes (the exact name is Achard Lakes). In fine weather, you will have an exceptional view of the Taillefer mountain.
