Preferer la montée du charvin en passant par le lac et la via Ferrata.

Amazing views but it was scary at the top after mont charvin. Bring clips for safety and the way down from the top was quite steep and slippery in some parts. We were careful but I can see this easily where those unprepared or not watching where they step could be a scary situation. Definitely do the loop according to the map. Our legs are now jelly after this hike.

For experienced hikers only. Very dangerous at the top of the mountain going down as the only thing to hold on to was metal ropes, one false step and it would be a deadly fall. Many people had harnesses and were clipping onto the rope, we did not have that therefore those sections were very scary. Do not walk the loop the opposite way as it is much harder dealing with the rocky paths. Very long walk, we are above average fitness and did the walk in over eight hours. The views are amazing and we will remember the walk for the rest of our lives.
