  • The scenery is beautiful throughout the hike. I should say the landscapes, between the forest, the warm basins, the valley of desolation, climbing, rocks, rivers of hot water and cold water, vegetation, flowers, and finally the lake! It's amazing! a real treat for the eyes! a real plunge into the heart of nature. The effort is intense, it is better to be prepared, the steps (rounds, rocks, etc.) on slopes and incessant ribs do not count, the feet advance alone on the way back. But it's well worth it!! The small break in a pool of hot water on the way back allows a boost of energy for the last hours of walking... Count 6 to 7 hours, time to picnic, take some pictures, take a shower;-) An unforgettable memory!
