Very Easy Sortie du Bois du Paradis

Published on 17 February 2013 | by Pierre-Alexandre


Bois du Paradis (Chamonix)

The Bois du Paradis, located in the commune of Les Praz, remains a haven of tranquility in the winter tumult of Chamonix Valley, far from the hustle and bustle of the city center and the slopes. Offering a beautiful panorama from Drus to Dôme du Goûter, the wood is truly the place to visit in Chamonix during the winter!

Route Description

I don’t propose any description of the itinerary this time, as the path is quite obvious 🙂
As I have already indicated, it is possible to reach the Bois du Bouchet located on the other side of the Arveyron by taking the D 1506 road in the direction of Chamonix for about 500 meters.
