Trek - Crossing the Massif des Bornes to the Aravis

We propose you a five days immersion in the heart of the Bornes massif until La Clusaz at the foot of the Aravis range. Our journey will start at the foot of the Parmelan. We will cross its limestone plateau and sleep at its summit to enjoy a 360° panoramic view. Then our journey will take the direction of the Glières plateau, the high place of the French resistance, and its magnificent mountain pastures. The Bargy massif will be the objective of the third day with the lake of Lessy nestled at the foot of the Buclon and the Jalouvre peak. Finally we will switch to the Aravis massif at the foot of the Pointe Percée, its highest point. The last day we will go along the Aravis combes before reaching the ski resort of La Clusaz.
