Col de la Forclaz

Recommended
From the belvedere of a small café (alt 1 150m), there is superb view of Lake Annecy. Its outline seems strangely winding at the foot of the Taillefer, "disfigured" by an enormous quarry. Note the shallow bank just off Duingt, occupied by lake-dwellings in prehistoric times, which casts a yellowish shadow on the deep blue waters of the lake. On the horizon it is possible to make out the ridges of the Vuache Mountain and the southern Jura.
