Description

Located in the department of Isère, the high mountain pastures of Trièves offer hilly routes at the foot of the imposing limestone cliffs of Dévoluy.

The snowshoeing hikes I propose yo here are located on the border of the Southern Alps, and they are also decorated with the immense cliff of Southern Vercors where the peaks of Mont Aiguille and Grand Veymont stand out. The itineraries you will follow in the mountain pastures dominate the Trièves, the country of asylum of the Huguenots (Protestants from the kingdoms of France and Navarre during the wars of religion in the second half of the 16th century, during which they were - under that name - in conflict with the Catholics) that have marked the history of this territory.

D1 (Saturday): appointment 12.30pm at the cottage, then hiking around.
At 2pm, start of the snowshoes hike to the Pass of Chante at the foot of the immense cliffs of Vercors and Dévoluy. This route is an opportunity for you to discover the Trièves.

D2 (Sunday): hiking in the pastures of Pointe Feuillette that dominate the Trièves and South Vercors. The imposing peaks of the Jarjatte, sentinel of Buëch, will watch over you. Return to the vehicle around 5pm and split of the group.
