Le Tour du Mont Roup

The classic loop around Mont Roup

A loop around the rugged alpine peak of Mont Roup

Starting at the hamlet of Le Manchet, accessible via the free shuttle train, the route starts up the valley following the Rau du Charvet.

Heading up the valley past the old hamlet continue until you reach the EDF platform. Skirting below the cliffs the path heads west until the the path goes past a sign for the Lac du Grapillon. Cross the stream and continue south around Mont Roup. The path starts to head east where you will meet a fork. Take a left turn and start heading north in the direction of the Cascade du Pisset. The waterfalls are biggest in the spring with the snow melt increasing the flow rate. 

Continuing along from the waterfalls the path follows the valley towards the Chalet du Rondet, where after crossing a small stream you rejoin the road leading back to the hamlet of Le Manchet.
