Lac du Lauzanier – Alpes du Sud
Alpes du Sud planned a hike.
June 30, 2021
The Lauzanier Valley is of glacial origin and until the last century it was heavily used for agriculture. Above all, pastures and hay meadows dominated the valley and favored the emergence of a great variety of plants. For example, from July you can admire large areas with the queen of the Alps, the blue alpine thistle, in many places.You start the hike there and back at the parking lot of Le Pont Rouge, in the middle of the Mercantour National Park. The information boards set up here give you a first, very good overview of the area. The path accompanies the Ubayette and gently rises. It is quite possible that you will meet the shepherd of the Eyssalp with his herd along the way, because he regularly lets them graze in the valley. But you will definitely see one of the many marmots that live here in a large population and only have to be afraid of the eagles.The path now becomes a little steeper until you reach the Lac de Lauzanier with its shimmering water surface. A small, open church stands picturesquely on the edge of the bank. Here you can pause for a moment and let this wonderful landscape work its magic on you. The way back to the starting point then follows the same route.
