We hike over Anterne pass and follow the Villy ridge to reach the Chaux pass and Grenier de Villy. We continue on to reach the summit of Mount Buet at 10 150ft. On the way down we follow the normal route until the Bérard stone mountain hut (6 600ft).
Up : 3 930ft / Down : 4 200ft / Hiking Time : 8 H 00


During this very quiet and last section of the trek, we hike on all types of terrain to finally reach the Cheserys lakes. Predominantly following unmarked trails, we hike through alpine grassy areas surrounded by red-colored rocks. Nestled not far from one of the last remaining glaciers in the Red Needle range, we come across several hidden mountain lakes, the perfect  place to enjoy  peace and quietness in an extraordinary alpine environment.

Your guide should be informed of any medical treatment.

CLIMATE : Alpine weather can change suddenly, involving wide temperature variations. Temperatures also drop with altitude, and snow falls in summer are not rare. A high pressure moving in can also bring in cool air.  You should anyhow bring warm clothes and be prepared for cold or very hot weather, while minimizing additional weight gain.
