A via ferrata between lake and mountain

The departure of the Thônes via ferrata is located a few minutes from the car park of Thônes bus station, there is about 10 minutes of approach on foot by a path before starting the difficulties.
This via ferrata is also called via ferrata from Roche à l'Agathe, it is aerial and vertical, but fortunately the very close equipment allows the greatest number to come to climb it safely.
The descent is from the top, down the cable in about 1 hour.
It is not uncommon to see chamois running through turns to graze some good mountain flowers, this incredible climber can surprise you more than once in this journey where it is difficult to cross this kind of 'animal. It's possible to make this via ferrata start from 13 years old
