A beautiful spot for swimming, fishing and hiking. It's a two hours walk from the la Fruitière restaurant car park. The Estom mountain cabin is right next to the lake and offers food, drinks and accommodation. Better book in advance for the accommodation as it is very popular

Except for the last kilometer, fairly easy hike in charming environments. The views and nature are amazing all along the way.

This is a beautiful walk and well worth it. You need to be reasonably fit but not ultra fit. The refuge at the top is very warm and welcoming offering lovely drinks, cheese/meats, home baked cakes, crepes etc., and the lake and mountain views are beautiful and very relaxing atmosphere.

Turn left at the La Fruitiere sign, a couple of Km before you get to Pont D'Espagne. There is a car park at the restaurant, follow the trail, it is a little harsh particularly towards the end, but you will be well rewarded for the 2 hours plus hike. It is spectacular up there. Lots of areas where you can see the avalanche trails and the devastation it causes. It is a most worthwhile walk, or hike if you prefer. Just stunning! Go with appropriate footwear and outerwear; the weather can change quite quickly.

Parking near la fruitier and then a 2.5 hour walk to the lake. The last section is quite steep and uneven, but not technical at all. The view from the top is well worth the climb.
