"Le lac du Lou" at dusk

Accessible to the whole family, this walk lasts 1.5 hours with the hissing of marmots in the background and the smell of the thyme. On arrival, it is a little corner of paradise, nestled in a preserved valley, which is revealed to the eyes of hikers.
They discover the largest and most beautiful lake in the Belleville Valley, sublimated by the sunset. A good gourmet stopover follows.
deserved at the Lou lake refuge before the night descent, at the headlamp or by moonlight. Magic !
