All the details on the unmissable hike in Orcières

Le Monde des 6 Lacs


Departure : Orcières

Duration : 3h30

Distance : 10.2 km

Elevation : 163 m

Route type : Loop

From the top of the Drouvet (thanks to the Télémix®), enter the World of the 6 Lakes : an unmissable hike in the heart of the wide open spaces of Orcières, crisscrossing between the plateaus and the high altitude lakes along 17 unique creations.

In the heart of the high pastoral mountains and the 6 natural lakes, you will enter the dream of a shepherd, you will hear the song of the sirens of the lake, you will look for animal footprints, you will play with water or clouds...

Accessible by Télémix®, leave from the summit of Drouvet towards Lac des Estaris (1h). At 2550m, it is the largest lake in the town, classified as a nature reserve. Continue in the direction of the Rocherousse chalet (45min) while the descent reveals the Lac Profond, the Lac Long, the Lacs Jumeaux, the Lac des Sirènes...(there is a variant towards the Lac des Pisses).

From Rocherousse, the route continues towards the Jujal plateau (20min), then descends through the flowery alpine pastures to the resort (30min).

You can also do the route without using the Télémix and climb to the top of Drouvet. As much to tell you that you will see the landscape!

From Lac des Estaris, you can climb to the Col de Fressinières in 40 minutes (200m D+), from where the more seasoned can extend the effort to Roc Diolon (3071m).
