Description

Through the mountain pastures. This road on a ledge has great views throughout the walk. This easy walk will take you through the Buchille mountain pastures and their many mountain plants.
Nature and Heritage: Explore La Buchille’s mountain pastures on this walk between Mont Billat and Pointe d'Ireuse, once home to over 300 cows. Alpine farmers still come to milk their livestock twice a day from June to September. Keep your dog on a lead so it doesn’t frighten the livestock. Make the most of your walk to spot Savoie mountain plants: yellow gentian, alpine anemone etc. Route details: From La Buchille chalets, go down the tarmac road and turn right onto the path to Pertuis chalets which goes up via the mountain pastures and reaches the chalets within half an hour. When you reach the chalets you can see the alpine chalets of Mévonne at the foot of the vertical cliffs of Mont Billat and Rocher du Jotty. In the distance from north to south you can see: Les Mémises, La Dent d'Oche and Les Cornettes de Bise. In the background you can see the Valais mountains (Switzerland). Mont Billat is only for experienced hikers. Don’t veer off the path if you’re not equipped as some paths are steep and slippery. (Ask for a mountain guide.)
