Le Thabor

in Valfréjus
Round-trip
  • A wild itinerary winding between lakes and scree allows you to reach a superb summit where the mineral landscape becomes lunar, and the panorama exceptional on prestigious summits: Grandes Jorasses, Cervin, Grande Casse, Mont Viso.

  • From Valfréjus or Le Lavoir, by the GR5, the hike is quite long but very varied.
    The Thabor is a mountain range between Savoie and the Hautes-Alpes, with Mont-Thabor as its highest point at 3,178 m.
    At the summit, the lunar atmosphere with a 360° view of the most beautiful peaks, from Viso to Mont Blanc, brings a feeling of plenitude.
    The summit of Le Thabor is accessible to all, without climbing, and French and Italian pilgrims meet every summer at the chapel of Notre-Dame des Sept...

    The summit of Le Thabor is accessible to all, without climbing, and French and Italian pilgrims meet every summer at the chapel of Notre-Dame des Sept Douleurs built in the 15th century. A "3,000 m" easy from mid-July onwards (there are snow patches until this period) for all lovers of hiking in wide open spaces.
    On this route over the Vallée Etroite pass at the foot of the Three Wise Men, one wonders about the origin of these names (Melchior, Gaspard and Balthazar, Thabor) and their meanings.
    Possibility of doing the itinerary over two days, sleeping at the Thabor refuge
