Whenever you venture out, ensure you're well-prepared with water, appropriate footwear, and layers to adapt to sudden weather changes. Also, booking ahead at Les Chevrelles, especially for larger groups, will guarantee a delightful culinary stop along your journey. Respect nature, stay on marked trails and start early to fully enjoy your adventure.

Les Gets: Heart of the Alps

Nestled within the Haute-Savoie department, Les Gets is more than just a starting point for the Mont-Chéry hike; it's a historical and cultural gem in the Rhône-Alpes region. This village, with roots stretching back to the 11th century, has transformed from a modest farming community into a renowned alpine resort without losing its authentic charm. The area's commitment to preserving its natural landscape and heritage makes it a compelling destination for those looking to explore the Alpine culture deeply.

Understanding Regional Weather

The general climate in Les Gets is Alpine, characterized by cool summers and cold, snowy winters. This makes the summer months, from June to September, the most favorable for hiking adventures, when the weather is mild and the paths are mostly snow-free. Winter presents a magical snowy landscape, ideal for snowshoeing or skiing, although the hiking paths would require careful preparation. The transition seasons, spring and autumn, can be unpredictable, with occasional showers and fluctuating temperatures, prompting hikers to come well-prepared for any condition.
