Overnight trek from pleasant free camping in an alpine meadow, to a snowy pass. This trail coincides with a section of the Grand Tour du Mont Blanc. After mid July (when snow is gone from the 2000's) it is usually possible to continue this hike westward to the Refuge de Preset and back to Les Chapieux. After climbing above green meadows, flowers, and the sounds of French livestock and farmers busily making the great local cheese subsides; we're left with the majestic sights and sounds of the high-altitude Alpine landscape. No imposing glaciers here, but we spotted ibex and deer - and hundreds of marmots. Overnight at the Refuge de la Croix cost 13 Euros/person (no keeper) before June 15th, and approx. 35 Euros during high season.
