The first part of the circuit crosses the south side of the valley, overlooking the Esseillon forts and the pine forests of Sardières, home to the famous Monolith. After Lanslebourg, a steep but steady climb leads to the beautiful panorama of Mont Cenis.
The climb from Lanslebourg runs through a shady larch forest to the open meadows of the Col du Mont-Cenis. It is worth continuing to the Mont-Cenis Pyramid, which houses a local history museum, and the adjoining Alpine Garden. This climb has kilometre markers betwin Lanslebourg and the Col du Mont-Cenis.
