Traversée Col de Barmerousse - refuge de Platé

Credit : B.SPURIO

With its lunar landscape, calm and delightful panorama, Platé is a site apart. On foot, discover this site, rich in geology, flora and fauna. The surface area of ??the site makes it the biggest lapies in Europe.

The limestone rocks that form this "Desert" were born on the ocean bed. They rose with the formation of the Alps. The carbon dioxide present in rainwater has dissolved the limestone and formed lapies (cracks in the rock), witness on the surface to a complex a network of underground tunnels.
From Praz Coutant car-park: the path begins on the other side of the road, right of the large cross (sign). Relatively easy at first, the path becomes steeper for about 200 m before crossing over towards the Chalets Charbonnière. A metal bridge alows one to cross the river before leaving the path to take the footpath to the right. This unique trail is marked by red dots and rises slightly to the right of the valley. After a steady climb on large grassy slopes, the trail winds through a system of ledges towrads the exit chimney. Climb the chimney until about half way up before crossing a rocky plateau that leads to the Platé Desert. Continue on the trail and cross a little path before you can contemplate the chalets.
Return by the same route.
