Route Description

No itinerary here as the route in the Bois du Bouchet is perfectly marked.
For the most courageous ones, it is possible to continue until the end of the wood to reach Les Praz and to walk on the snowy path along the golf leading to the Bois du Paradis located under the Balcon Sud. From here, you have a better perspective on Aiguille du Midi and Dôme du Gouter.
