    La Chapelle-d'Abondance

    A hike in the heart of the Cornettes de Bise Natura 2000 site to discover the high mountain pastures of the Abondance valley and its exceptional natural environment..

    A beautiful sporty hike where there is no lack of “photo” panoramas!

    At La Chapelle d’Abondance, from the Chevenne car park at 1 217 m, you will take the forest track which leads you to the Mens chalets (1 588 m).

    You will then reach the chalet de la Combe au Trot to reach the Pas de la Bosse (1 816 m).

    A magnificent view awaits you on the Bise valley, the Cornettes de Bise, and the Valais summits such as the Dents du Midi.

    The natural environment of the site is exceptional for its fauna (ibex, mouflon, marmot, black grouse…) and its flora (gentian, martagon lily, paradise lily, arnica…).

    You will go back down to the chalets de la Cheneau and then join Chevenne.
