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.

Description

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!!
