Five farms make up this old alpine pasture that has been renovated yet still bears all the signs of a bygone pastoral age. Beautiful site with views of the Aiguilles de Chamonix and the Chaine des Fiz.

From the Côte des Chavants car park, follow directions for the Ecole de Physique
des Houches, then follow the small marked trail which branches off to the left and
leads to the Charousse Alpine pastures, nestled below the Prarion mountain.

Recommended period *

From 01/05 to 31/10.

Subject to favorable snow and weather conditions.
