Hiking : the Mont d'Arbois - Mont Joux

Hiking : the Mont d'Arbois - Mont Joux

Along the path admire one of the last farms in the middle of the meadows of alpine flowers, gentians, primroses, cows-lips, buttercups, etc... and the panoramic view over the golf course. Uninterrupted view of the Mont-Blanc massif.

Setting out from the Mont d'Arbois cable car and heading in the direction of the hamlet of Planellet, follow the "Mont d'Arbois" signposts on the Mont-Blanc Tour route (yellow and red).
From the arrival point of the cable car take the path that goes by the "Idéal 1850" restaurant and follow the line of crest that passes near the Bettex cable car (viewpoint indicator) and rises towards Mont Joux.
Exceptional viewpoint over the Mont-Blanc, the Aravis, the Arly and Arve Valleys.
From Mont Joux, the highest point of the hike at 1958m, and after the chairlifts, head dawn towards the Chalets de Joux toward Megève. Enter the forest by a good path until you reach the "Alpages de Tornay Haut" and follow a wall-marked path to the hamlet of Planellet. From Planellet it will take 10 minutes to reach the starting point.
On the way, admire the magnificient wooden chalets.
