5.9 km
Round-trip
  • The must-see in Oisans ! Access to the lake by a nice stroll in the National Parc des Ecrins. The itinerary winds along the huge rockslide that was at the orignin of the creation of the lake, but in a shady and bucolic atmosphere.

  • This is one of the most beautiful sites in the Oisans for children aged from 7 and over.

    "YOU HIKE IN THE HEART OF THE ECRINS NATIONAL PARK
    The Écrins massif is an exceptional area, open to all, with a rare natural, cultural and landscape heritage. To protect this wealth, the heart of the park is marked with blue-white-red flags, where regulations must be respected.

    ITINERARY:
    From the car park in the hamlet of La Danchère, take the path passing in front of the village café to find the GR54. At the end of the track there are two paths, one on each bank of the stream: either the one on the right which winds quietly up to the lake, more varied and gentler for the climb, or the one on the left, shadier but steeper, perfect for the descent and for making the loop. A footbridge allows you to change sides about halfway up. The most courageous will continue to the Col du Vallon, to the right of the lake, where a lake nestles in a wilder high mountain atmosphere.

    THE PARC DES ECRINS, A FRAGILE NATURE TO PROTECT
    When hiking in the Parc des Ecrins, you must respect the regulations that allow you to enjoy this exceptional natural area: do not leave the paths, dogs are not allowed even on a leash, no picking of flowers, no taking of fossils, minerals, animals..., do not throw anything on the ground (bring your own rubbish). Nature thanks you!

    TO BE SEEN ON THE COURSE :
    What a reward when you arrive at the edge of the lake and the marmots show up! You will enjoy observing the mountain flora: martagon lily, orange lily, spotted orchis... depending on the season.

    NOTES:
    The largest lake in the Écrins massif is also an integral nature reserve at the bottom of the valley (totally untouched by humans). And don't forget that you are in the Écrins National Park: don't leave the paths, don't pick flowers, don't swim, respect these gifts of nature!
  • Tips
    If you want to take your little ones with you, the tourist office rents baby carriers. Don't forget to bring all the necessary equipment: walking shoes, sunglasses, water, sun cream...
