Haute-Savoie (74) is a hiking area par excellence because of its many massifs at both medium and high altitude. Hikers wishing to hike along the high peaks will head towards the Mont-Blanc massif and the Chamonix valley where they will discover breathtaking landscapes from Lac Blanc (2352 m) or Aiguillette des Houches (2285 m) in particular. To the north, the walker will evolve in a medium mountain environment in the heart of the Chablais massif with its peaks overlooking Lake Geneva and the Jura massif, like the Cornettes de Bise (2432 m) or the Dent d’Oche (2221 m).
