TECHNICAL INFORMATION Starting point: La Bérarde Height gain: 670 m Duration: 2 1/2 hours Distance: 7.7 km Level: Difficult ROUTE Starting from the lower car park in La Bérarde, walk up to the Maison de la Montagne in the village. Continue along the side of the building to the path that starts at the end of the village. From here, you can already see the Meije, Grand Pic and the Glacier Carré. Continue for around one hour, following the Vénéon to the Refuge du Carrelet. This is where the climb starts up to the Refuge de Temple Ecrins as you leave the main path, turning left at the junction. The path goes up through a forest of pine trees and the shape of some of the trunks says a lot about the harsh climate! Once you come out of the forest, you have a magnificent view over the Pilatte glacier and the source of the Vénéon. You then come out onto alpine grassland. DURING THE HIKE In the Alpine grassland, you can see rhododendrons, gentian violets and many other mountain flowers. There are often chamois and marmots around the mountain hut. EXTRA INFO The Refuge de Temple Ecrins is the starting point for many wonderful climbs, such as the Traversée des Ecrins and the Pic Coolidge.
