Departure from Colmars-les-Alpes, a town of character on the banks of the Verdon, one of the most beautiful towns fortified by Vauban with its two forts protecting the valley entrances.

12 km
Round trip

The relatively short but invigorating ascent takes you up this emblematic pass in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department, through a larch forest in the Mercantour National Park’s protected area. For the next two kilometers, markers indicate the distance to the pass, the average gradient and the altitude. At the summit, breathe in the pure mountain air and enjoy an unforgettable 360° panorama. On your return to Colmars-les-Alpes, take a short stroll along the path to the magnificent Lance waterfall. Don’t miss a unique visit to the Maison Musée, with its walkway encircling the village, a surprising discovery and a delight for visitors.
