    ITINERARY
    Cross the Alleau hamlet, and take the direction to the Muzelle lake.
    [About 4 hours to get to the refuge at 2130m]. Go around the lake by its right, cross the lawn and join the start of the path in the rocks. The climb the trail is nearby [about 1h30 to go from the "refuge de la Muzelle"]. From the "col du Vallon" , you have a beautiful view of the surroundings. Walk down to the lake Lauvitel staying on your left . After a long winding path, you reach a rocky characteristic spoiler, with a beautiful view over the lake. From there you have to cross a great ravine on the right. (Be careful crossing a slab can be dangerous and crossing the spoiler can be impressive)
    The path goes up a little (10 min) before reaching the pastures above the lake (not recommended in rainy weather). Descend to the Danchère to reach the starting point of the hike.
