Hike the Vallée des Merveilles and spot ancient stone carvings along the route. Enjoy the view from the pass and over several lakes before enjoying a nice dinner and night at Refuge Valmasque.
Need to Know
If you plan to stay at the refuges at the start and/or end of this hike, book ahead - especially in the summer time! Both were full, when we stayed there.
The hike starts out from Refuge des Merveilles and winds it's way up to Baisse de Valmasque (2549 m). From here on it is a fairly easy descent (mostly) along a couple of lakes until you reach the Refuge Valmasque situated very pittoresque above Le Lac Vert. Look out for stone carvings along the route!!
