Geocache Description:

100m above les Tronchets on the path towards the Col du Granon. 100m au dessus le Tronchets a cote du sentier pour le Col du Granon

Les Tronchets is a small hamlet 5km up the road from Chantemerle to the Col du Granon (2404m) where the Tour du France had a stage finish in 1986. Each summer there is a race up this road, the 'Defi du Granon' open to cyclists & runners. In winter, October-April, the road is closed to vehicles but makes a lovely sunny afternoon walk after a morning's skiing....the views of the Ecrins & the Serre-Chevalier ski area are superb. In winter, make sure you take lots to put on, as you get hot walking up & sitting in the sun at les Tronchets, but when the sun goes down & you descend into the valley, the temperature plummets! Les Tronchets est un petit hameau 5km de Chantemerle sur la route de Granon ou le Tour de France a fini un etape en 1986.En ete il y a un course sur cette route, Le Defi du Granon, pour les cyclistes et les coureurs. Entre octobre et Avril la route est fermee mais il est une bonne promenade apres une matinee de ski, la panorama des Ecrins et Serre chevalier est superbe. En hiver c'est necessaire de prendre beaucoup des vetements parce-que on etait chaud pour montee au soleil mais c'est tres froide en descent au vallee en ombrage. Klik hier voor meer gratis plaatjes
