Croix de Chamrousse - Lacs Robert by the path

  • Pedestrian
  • Difficult - red level
half day
Departure: Croix gondola arrival (from Chamrousse 1650 - Recoin)
Please note that the gondola is only open in July and August and on certain weekends in June and September (otherwise it is a minimum 2.5 hour walk up the hill).
Follow the path down to the Trois Fontaines pass, then to the Botte pass. Go down to the left towards the Lessines pass and then follow the signs to the lakes. Be careful, the last part between the Lessines pass and the lakes is relatively complex with rocky passages.

Caution: the shepherd of Chamrousse has dogs with his herd (but no patous), for a good cohabitation between mountain people and the work of the shepherd, thank you for respecting some instructions. Do not cross the herd, do not try to pet or feed the dogs or the herd, do not make sudden gestures or throw things that could frighten the dog, do not start running and avoid taking photos from too close...

☆ Little extra: "Hiking star" a medal for children in summer too!
Showing us a picture taken during their hike, courageous little walkers will be awarded a diploma with their name + gold star "Robert lakes" on sale (2.50€ at the Tourist Offices) to wear proudly on the backpack.
Opening periodFrom 15/06 to 30/09.
Please note that the cable car is only open in July and August and on certain weekends in June and September (otherwise it is a minimum 2.5 hour walk up the hill).
