Description
Waypoints (1)

Le lac de l'Eychauda est un lac de montagne situé à 2 514 m d'altitude, en zone centrale du parc national des Écrins, dans le département français des Hautes-Alpes en région Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. Ce lac alpin se trouve aux pieds des crêtes des Grangettes et du dôme de Monêtier (3 404 m). C'est l'un des trois plus grands lacs du massif des Écrins. Dans un environnement minéral et glaciaire, le lac de l’Eychauda est un lac glaciaire, c'est-à-dire qu'il ne dégèle que quelques mois par an et a une très courte période estivale de production biologique. Il a été creusé par le glacier de Séguret Foran, et est apparu au cours du retrait glaciaire, comme les lacs des Rouies, du glacier d'Arsine, des Quirlies. Il est nourri par le torrent des Oules.

HikingGreat!

Great hike to the lake, to get there took us around 2 hours. The views are amazing but i would recommand to take a short klim of 30 min to the top. The views are even beter there! Overall is the hike really doable and not to difficult.

Fairly short and not too difficult, the views are amazing. The lake is giant, and in summer there were several nice waterfalls towards the beginning

BackpackingGreat!

Superbe rando avec belle récompense à l’arrivée. Le lieu est idéal pour pique-niquer. S’il vous reste un peu de force et de courage, ça vaut le coup de pousser jusqu’au col, là-haut la vue est à couper le souffle, sans difficulté majeure

En arrivant au lac, pousser impérativement jusqu'au col des Grangettes (environ 30min supplémentaires), pour jouir d'un somptueux panorama. Penser à prendre de quoi se couvrir en arrivant au lac !

I actually started from la salle les alpes, which made this hike a bit longer and more difficult. But in general it is a beautiful hike. No snow/ice in September but in October there was quite a bit of snow. Wear sunscreen as there isn't much shade and I got a bit sunburned.
