Trek - On the wild plateau of Parmelan

We propose you a two-day trek in a wild and preserved atmosphere on the Parmelan plateau. On the first day we'll go to the ascent of the Head of Parmelan. We will spend part of the day on the lapiaz, typical limestone formations of the plateau, which will plunge us into a very special lunar atmosphere. We will spend the night, perched at the top of the mountain with a 360° view. The next day we'll go down towards the Glières plateau. The terrain will become gentler and gentler as you approach the large peat bogs.
