  • List of topo-guides

    You couldn't dream of greater variety in this series of hikes in this topo-guide which, with the major line of Belladonne, connects the two lateral massifs of Taillefer-Grand Serre to the south and the Rousses to the east. Their structure is highly original, as is the choice of possible circuits. The common link in these two massifs is the large number of lakes, either surrounded by plunging cliffs or spreading freely over plains.
