Mount Thabor and its Refuge

Valfréjus

Randonnée vers le Mont-Thabor à Valfréjus
OTHMV - G MONIN
Description

Starting from the Lavoir, the first climb on a track is a little steep, but you'll soon forget the effort as you reach La Loza water basin. From chalet to chalet, the path winds through the alpine pastures as Tarine cows placidly look on, chewing tender grass and wildflowers. Nestled at the foot of Mount Tabor, a stunning backdrop, the refuge sits on the banks of the enchanting Sainte-Marguerite and Lac Long lakes, patiently awaiting hikers who need a rest. Then the trail slips through Col de la Vallée Narrow before climbing to Lac Peyron and Col des Méandes. The landscape becomes more lunar, and you feel infused with the serenity of the place as youadvance towards the chapel, like the French and Italian pilgrims who gather there every year. Once at the top, embrace the vastness of the Tabor opening out before you, with a stunning view of the Alps' high peaks, from Viso to Meije. Granted, this is a long hike, but by the time you get back, your mind is filled with magnificent images. This rock giant has truly bathed you in tranquillity!
