Hike to alpine pasture et the lake of Pormenaz

Lake situated near the Pormenaz alpine pastures, a mountain just above Servoz
and Passy not far from the Moede-Anterne refuge. Fishing is possible in the lake.
From the pretty fountain, take the route de la Cote to the first bend. Here a footpath goes off to the right in the direction of the Gorges de la Diosaz and crosses the Torrent du Souay. Follow the path upwards, ignoring the paths to the Tête de la Fontaine and to la Bajulaz on your right. Carry on up a steep slope to a pyramidal marker to reach the Chalets de Pormenaz (1 925 m) 3 h. The path now flattens out as you traverse towards the Chalets de Chavanne Neuve (15 minutes from the route to Pointe Noire de Pormenaz: don’t miss the geological curiosity here) and then on towards the Lac de Pormenaz.

Starting point: It is possible to start from the Moulins d’en-Haut 859 m above
Servoz and join the path described above near the torrent du Souay.
Others itineraries available from Servoz or Passy.
More information at the Tourist Office, High Mountain Office and in our hiking guide.
