There are several routes possible; let us show you the way!
By following Les Crêtes ridge from the top of Tougnète, you will first reach the Grand Lac from where you can go back down to La Chaudanne via Les Granges, a walk of about 3 hours (from Tougnète). You can make a small diversion to the Croix Jean-Claude before returning to the Grand Lac and going back down. It is also possible to descend to Les Allues via the Col de Jean.
Alternatively, continue to Col de la Lune, an additional hour's walk, before descending to Les Allues via the Refuge de la Traye. This walk lasts 4 hours.
This walk is suitable to all, young and old alike, including runners! The short uphill sections won’t take your breath away, but the views certainly will!
Don't worry about getting back to Méribel - simply take the free buses!
Along the way, you’ll come across 2 orientation tables which allow you to identify the different summits in Méribel and the 3 Vallées!
