Planlebon Route

© Les Menuires

Starting at the entrance to the Vallée des Encombres, this route will take you through the hamlets of Planlebon, Les Priots and Gittamelon. These Alpine pastures, some in ruins, are an intense reminder of the farming activity in the valley. The route includes some quite steep, windy sections at the beginning, as well as a footbridge over the Planebon gorges.
