Peyre Lake - Hike

Credit : Emmanuel Blanchet

This hike to Lake Peyre will delight families, many of them on this route. In the middle of boulders, the route offers you different points of view and gives you the opportunity to cross some marmots, sheep or even ibex.
Special recommendation: very busy trail during school holidays. Damaged and slippery trail, not to do after the rain.

The start is near the Col de la Colombière chalet-restaurant. Follow the marked Lac de Peyre path (1h40) and leave the other path to the Jalouvre on the left.

After thirty minutes of walking, you arrive at the chalets of La Colombière. The path winds in a zig-zag and becomes steeper up to a grassy patch. The lake is not far away, nestled in a hollow, surrounded by Pointe Blanche and Pointe du Midi. The view of the Mont-Blanc range is magnificent. The emblematic bird, the vulture, likes to fly over the lake during hikers' lunch.
The descent is by the same path as the outward journey.
