Randonnée au Lac Blanc depuis le Col des Montets
Viewpoint on the Aiguilles du Massif du Mont Blanc.
Please note: in order to preserve the mountain lakes, swimming is now prohibited in the Lac Blanc and the Lacs des Chéserys by prefectural decree.
Inside the Nature Reserve, set in the hollow of the Aiguilles Rouges, this often snow-covered lake is the center of a beautiful view of the Aiguilles de Chamonix, the Drus and the Verte.
Departure from the Col des Montets: Behind the chalet in the nature reserve, the path winds up in a valley over a 400m drop. It reaches the inclined plateau of Remuaz: below on the left the monument of Youth and Mountain (1943) and on the right the small lake of Remuaz. It joins the Tête aux Vents crossing. Turn right. The path runs along a ridge. The 5 pretty lakes are visible as you go up provided you stay on the right path. From the last lake, the path straightens out at an equipped passage, in order to cross large rounded rocks: it leads through a depression to the lake and the refuge.
