The recommended easier route on the right side of the valley we found more strenuous and difficult. Very loose boulders. Generally bad condition of the ways. The walk to the lake and back is recommended for children over 6 years. Alpine experienced children from 6 maybe? I would go left side in both directions on another visit. The 2 ladders and the point with rope safety device are easy to walk on.

The walk from the car park to Lac de Melu is really a must when in Corte. We paid 6 euros for the parking ticket in September and parked at the top of the last parking lot. From there the easy way is easy to find. After 1.5 kilometers, the path divides. In our opinion, neither way is easier or easy. Left (seen from the valley) is very blocked with large rocks, right is only for vertigo. You have to overcome two places with ladders.
The tour is not FlipFlop suitable but for experienced hikers in two hours to go. Those who take a break should think of Vesper and jacket. There is no way to find protection.

You have to get to the parking lot before nine o'clock, otherwise it gets very crowded and you have to park further down the valley. There is a lot going on here in the high season. Parking fees € 6 for cars and € 3 for motorcycles. The hike can only be mastered with good shoes and sufficient fluids, because the path is blocked and full of scree. It doesn't matter which way you choose. The view and the crystal clear lake reward you for the not so easy hike. I give the hike an S3 to S4 of difficulty. Only possible with children who love to run. You are no longer allowed to swim in the lake. I didn't see a prohibition sign at the upper lake.

The right side from the valley to the Lac de Melo is much easier to walk than the left. The scree was partially cleared out of the way here. Difficult places were secured by ladders and chains. At weddings, however, there is a lot of business here. A beautiful mountain panorama compensates for everything.
