Day 2: cabane d'Essertze - cabane St-Laurent

Distance: 14 km

Leave for the conquest of the summit of the Mont-Rouge (2491 m). After this ascent, you will have an opportunity to quench your thirst at the restaurant Les Chottes (2209 m). Then continue in the direction of the alpine pasture of la Combyre-Meina, where you will be able to discover the production of the famous raclette cheese (which can be bought on the spot).

At the restaurant of Combatseline (2238 m), profit from the magnificent panorama which opens up before you. Continue along the Bisse de Chervé which constitutes a spectacular mountain path with a sumptuous view over the Cleuson dam.
At the end of the lac de Cleuson is the cabane St-Laurent (2485 m) in which you will spend your second night.

If you have the time and the inclination, the Lac du Grand Désert (2642m) is located at a 30-minute walk above the cabane St-Laurent.
