A nice hiking idea in the Vallouise valley is to leave the hamlet of Puy Aillaud (1580 meters above sea level), to reach the summit of Blanche (2953 meters above sea level) and its superb panorama towards the Pelvoux.
Lake Puy Aillaud (2534 meters) is accessible in about 2 to 4 hours, depending on your pace, from the hamlet (1600 m) of the same name. This lake rounded measuring about 60 meters in diameter.
The viewpoint of the three refuges (2350 meters) is located in the High Alps (Hautes Alpes, 05) in Pelvoux even if the start and most of the ride takes place in Vallouise. The lookout is located in the National Park Ecrins.
