What you'll do

We will climb for an hour and a half (including breaks) in the forest to visit a naturally lit cave on the mountainside. We will then benefit from a wide balcony path at the foot of the cliffs with a breathtaking view of the Jura, Geneva and its water jet as well as Lake Geneva. Then, we will climb 10 minutes to reach a pasture giving us an almost complete view of the lake (the largest lake in Europe) and on the other side of the mountain to contemplate, there too, the Chablais, the Dents du Midi, everything the Mont-Blanc massif, the mountains of Lake Annecy and the Bauges. We will watch paragliders take off, then tired of bliss, we will finally descend through the forest by making a loop to reach the minibus. The physical level is average with 635m of elevation, it is not a simple walk. The technical level is also average. You have to watch where you put your feet during the descent which can in some places be slippery.

Robert

I was born by the sea, but for 30 years my expertise has been the mountains. From Mont-Blanc to Nepal via the Atlas in Morocco, my job as a medium mountain guide allows me to share my passions of fauna, flora, the history of Lake Geneva, as well as the beauty of the landscapes. This balcony photo hike is unusual. I invite you to share my knowledge of back roads, ecosystems, Nature and Men ... Even to exchange with you on these busy travel diaries. My daily inspiration blends between the art of living and Nature, which I don't hesitate to write down. Take your cameras to take exceptional shots with impressive lights and your walking shoes.
