Description

Discover the verdant mountain pastures of the Col de l'Encrenaz and enjoy superb views of the Mont-Blanc chain, the Aravis peaks and the majestic Roc d'Enfer.
After a walk along a shady path, you'll gradually reach the Col de la Basse, where Abondance cows graze peacefully. Climbing up through the alpine pasture to the left of the pass, you reach the summit of the Char des Quais, from where the view is even more breathtaking.
