After leaving the Argentiere la Bessée and once you have passed the districts of Plan Léothaud (where you have to follow the GR) and Ubac, you go up through a pine forest to the first bridge which crosses the Fournel stream. Beginning of the eponymous valley, a mecca for ice climbing in winter, this place is also steeped in history. Indeed, as you begin the descent, you overlook the Fournel gorges where silver mining activity was at its peak in the XiXth century. Then you cross to the Blachière where a more open descent among the crops and dwellings brings you back to the starting point.

Through our practice, it is essential to respect the work of the farmers, operators and owners who welcome us on their land.

In order to prevent the herds from escaping, all fences must be closed properly.
Bring back all your garbage,
Don't cut routes through the meadows.
