La Grave area

Facing a high mountain chain including la Meije, the village of la Grave is located in a picturesque area. The smaller villages of le Chazelet, les Terrasses, Ventelon, les Hières are even more picturesque and offer access to a number of hikes in the area, as well as quite strenuous climb to the Emparis plateau to the West. A cable car climbs from la Grave to the Col des Ruillans, providing an easy access to the glacier de la Girose at an altitude of 3211m.

The weather was ideal when we explored this area, giving us very nice photo opportunities.
