Presentation

Hike GR®738 from Chamrousse to the Pra shelter, nothing to envy to the greatest routes of great trekking!
Discover the beautiful and more or less secret mountain lakes on the 10th stage of the GR®738 : Léama, Longet, Bernard, Claret ...
The hiking trail to the Pra refuge alternates between ponds and clearings. But it is especially the crystal clear lakes that make this place exceptional.
The three lakes around La Pra are the Claret, Merlat and Crozet lakes. The David lake is located 500 meters above the Pra refuge, on the west side when you have the refuge at your back.

Once a chalet-hotel, the refuge de la Pra was very popular with hikers and climbers. Now refurbished, it sleeps 90 in summer.

The GR®738 - Haute traversée de Belledonne is a challenge to be taken up over one or more days to discover the south of this massif by leaving from Chamrousse for a one-day loop or a two-day itinerary. Lakes and pastures cross the ski lifts, tourism and pastoralism share the space.

⚠ Closure by municipal decree of Revel since 19/05/2022 and until further notice of the access walk and hike of the portion GR®738 between the Crozet and the col de la Pra.
