Description

Overlooking the Plateau d'Assy in Passy, Haute Savoie, the Curalla via ferrata offers incredible views of the Chamonix peaks and the Mont Blanc. This route which follows a beautiful limestone balcony dominated by the Aiguille de Varan is of an intermediate level and offers several cable bridges and footbridges.

Fun, sporty and vertiginous, the Curalla via ferrata will delight all the amateurs of this activity! On this cliff facing south, it offers a 500 meter long route, ascending and crossing from right to left, with footbridges, Nepalese bridges and cable bridges. There are some steep athletic passages (not vertical but overhanging) and the void is also quite present.

The itinerary starts with a crossing interspersed with a more ascending and steep passage, until arriving at the most impressive passage: the crossing of the Nepalese bridge (Varan's bridge) 18 meters long and then a short vertiginous and a bit technical section. This is followed by a few footbridges and cable bridges, and then a long traverse in the middle of the cliffs, including more vertical passages, leading to the last obstacle: the Mont Blanc bridge.

The return is done on foot, on a forest path which dominates the cliff on which the via ferrata is located.

So come with your family or friends to share a moment of adventure and nature in total safety!

Important: for organizational reasons, we ask that you make your request at least 3 days before the desired date of departure.
