A journey through one of the most secret valleys of Ossau. The start, situated on the edge of the Fabrèges lake, takes you to the Col du Lurien in a splendid climb (1200d+) at the bottom of the valley. At the pass, go down to a small pond and follow it to the right until you find a small path. The route then joins the Gare du Lac du Train d'Artouste station and then descends along this secret Soussouéou valley. Let yourself be guided by the cairns and the grassy path. Very few beacons are present there. Once arrived on the plateau of the same name, you will go up along the ski slopes before reaching the Col de la Sagette, then the top of the Artouste resort.
Itinerary information :
At the level of the Artouste Lake Station, it is necessary to cross the train track. To cross safely, please contact the train staff. The rest of the way leads you to the bottom of the valley, you must not follow the train track under any circumstances.
This route ends at the top of the Sagette cable car. If you walk down from the top of the gondola, it becomes a red route.
It is possible to cut the route in two at the Gare du Lac du Train d'Artouste (km 7,5), and take the train back (remember to buy a one-way ticket before starting the route).
Through our practice, it is essential to respect the work of the farmers, other operators and owners who welcome us on their land:
So that the herds do not escape, close all the electric fences and do not damage them!
Also, do not disturb the herds, greet the people you meet with a friendly "hello", and of course bring back all your rubbish! Do not cut routes through the meadows, and do not picnic either!
