Departure: gondola's arrival at 2250m of altitude
In a high mountain atmosphere, discover the magnificent mountain lakes along this hike, and especially Lake Léama with its supernatural blue colour.
At the end of the path, gaze at this large open country scattered with streams and listen to the marmots whistling at your arrival. If you ever decide to sleep at the mountain hut of La Pra, you may see chamois early in the morning pasturing nearby.
La Pra is a mountain pasture too. Sheep are proudly looked after by patous (Pyrenean mountain dogs). We advise you not to cross the flock and to keep your dog on a leash going staying as far as possible.
From 15/06 to 15/10.

Subject to snow conditions.
A hiking trails guide is available at the tourist offices of Chamrousse.
