Description

A lovely walk enabling hikers to discover different stages of vegetation, with a stop off at the Cabane de Chazeau, before arriving at the legendary lake. Brave hikers can go for a swim, but everyone will enjoy this magnificent site close to the Grand Pic de Belledonne.

This circular walk takes you up to the Belledonne lake and is one of the unmissable hikes of the Eau d'Olle valley. The scenery is magnificent and untamed, with lovely panoramic views over the Belledonne mountain chain (Croix de Belledonne and Les Sept Laux), the Grandes Rousses and the Massif du Rissiou.

It then goes over a rockfall and up to the lake via some steep switchbacks, before continuing steeply up to the Cabane du Chazeau through a forest of spruce trees, with some lovely views over the Pic Blanc, Pic Bayle and Pic de l'Etendard.

Fishing in Oisans (Circuit n°18)

With its altitude lakes, fastflowing mountain streams and rivers, Oisans is definitely waterorientated. A number of accessible rivers are packed with wild trout, yet the fast flow of most mountain rivers can make the fishing them a true sport!The lakes are not to be outdone. At Alpe d’Huez, Lac Besson, under the watchful eye of the Grandes Rousses, is full of trout of all kinds, as well as with magnificent charfish. The same goes for the Lac du Plan at Les 2 Alpes, the Lac du Lauvitel in the Veneon valley and the Eau d’Olle valley. The Rive in Bourg d’Oisans is one of the purest rivers in France and has a fly-fishing stretch for enthusiasts of this difficult sport.
