Description

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

The snowshoeing hikes I propose during this weekend are located on the border between the Southern and Northern Alps, and they are also decorated with the immense cliff of the Southern Vercors where the peaks of Mont Aiguille and Grand Veymont (the highest peak of the Vercors massif at 2341 metres) 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.
