  • Alpes du Sud

    A surprising side of the Ecrin massif can be seen in the Champsaur glacier valley: the old cultural landscape with the fields, meadows and forests enclosed in beech and ash hedges is beautiful and so very different from the otherwise rugged rocks and deep valleys of the massif.You start the short walk in the small hamlet of Beaurepaire and hike along a themed path that explains the flora and fauna as well as the historical agricultural work methods of the Bocage du Champsaur on information boards. The hedges were planted to protect the crops from the cold north wind that often blows through the valley and from drying out, and the summer water shortage was countered by building water channels, some of which are still in service today.While you look over the valley and let this unique landscape affect you, you hear the singing of the birds or the babbling of the small canals - and it is not uncommon for a fox or a deer to cross your path. Magical.
