Lakes of Plan Richard
73210 La Côte-d'Aime
Come and enjoy a nice hike in the Vanoise National Park, with the possibility to admire lakes, torrents and waterfalls; without forgetting its inhabitants: marmots, bearded vultures and golden eagles. Possible from July to October.
Ideal hike: a climb in the forest, lakes, a river that winds through the valley, torrents, waterfalls, marmots and the Mont Pourri that dominates the whole route... This hike is quite long with 1200m of difference in altitude and is for experienced hikers (but it is possible to limit the hike by going only to the lake of La Plagne). The first part of the hike takes place in an area that is quite frequented during the summer season, but once past the Plagne lake, you will have the impression of being alone in the world, facing the beauty of nature.
Ibexes and chamois are nearby; marmots are not shy. And if you are lucky, you may see the famous "bone-crushing" vulture, the bearded vulture, hovering in this sumptuous setting. You will have the opportunity to observe these animals in their natural environment without disturbing them: binoculars and spotting scopes will be at your disposal to enjoy these magical moments!
Elevation gain : 1200m.
