A sensory and panoramic stroll?
It's a real mountain and playful route that awaits you up to the belvedere of the Rocher de Bellevue! Then, having reached the Aiguille de Chalais, take advantage of this 360° panorama which is offered in front of you.

Starting from the convent of Chalais, the almost flat course offers 6 sensory stations in 1,3 km. The panoramic platform will allow you to exhale, inhale, inhale... in short, to take your breath away!
If you haven't climbed your first 1000m yet, continue to the needle: you will follow the cliffs, cross some rocks using a cable to reach a 360° at the top. The more flexible descent takes place in the woods opposite the monastery (reserve of biscuits at the shop!).
