The Salève (via Etrembières)

13 October 2017 | by Pierre-Alexandre

The Salève is an emblematic summit of Haute-Savoie and the Geneva Basin, offering the walker a panorama of choice on the vast majority of the peaks of the region, as well as on Lake Annecy and Lake Geneva. A quick look at the map shows that several hiking routes are possible in order to climb

9 April 2017 | by Pierre-Alexandre

Lac des Chambres

30 August 2011 | by Pierre-Alexandre

The Lac des Chambres, nestled at the foot of Pointe Rousse and Roches de la Couarra, is the objective of this walk. Formerly covered with late névé and icebergs, the Lac des Chambres today is a real “observatory” on the direct consequences of global warming
