Head towards the finish of the Roberts lakes chairlift and continue straight on to the Trois Fontaines pass. Head left to follow the wide track alongside the chairlift.

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.
