C’est un long parcours en anneau qui offre d’intéressantes idées aussi bien du point de vue du paysage que du point de vue naturaliste. On découvre les ruines des fortifications de Plan Praz, les lacs et les tourbières du Ruitor, les glaciers, les spectaculaires cascades au milieu de la forêt verte.


Description of the route

From the car park at the bar in La Joux, take the Alta Via 2 route, AV2. Go past the crossroads with the itineraries that lead to the three waterfalls on the Ruitor, and when you come to another crossroad, continue along AV2, ignoring route 8 on the right, and head for the lakes of Bella Comba. After a section on level ground at Alpe Glacier and the lakes of the same name, the path steeply gains altitude, climbing to the pasture of Ruitor and lastly to the Deffeyes refuge.
