Walking route -Tête de Lindaret – Pointe de Chésery from Bassachaux

more pictures

    A beautiful hike from the Col de Bassachaux. Panoramic views of the Portes du Soleil area, Mont de Grange, Mont Blanc, Dents du Midi, Lake Montriond…

    The tête de Lindaret is an easy hike, but with a good climb all the same.

    After leaving the Col de Bassachaux, you will first reach the tête de Lindaret at an altitude of 1,950m, where you can enjoy a 360° view.

    You will then reach the Pointe de Chésery, which marks the border with our Swiss neighbours. At 2251m, you can admire the view of the Swiss mountains and surrounding valleys.

    If you’re passing through Rochassons, you can try the Fantasticable, which leaves from the top of the chairlift. Comfortably installed in a harness, you can fly over the hamlet of Plaine-Dranse at almost 100 km/h and up to 240 m high.
