    The term "Oisan" used to refer to the Romanche and the Vénéon. It has now been extended to cover the areas around Guisane, Vallouise, Champsur, Valgaudemar, Valjouffrey and Valnestre. The Parc National des Ecrins watches over these exceptionally welcoming areas. They have been carefully chosen for the reintrodution of the ibex. Up there, on the sunny slopes, it chews away at the young grass. It watches you with its golden eyes, just waiting to be admired.
