In a deep valley, La Grave faces La Meije, the most renowned of the Écrins peaks. It draws keen climbers on account of the vast choice of itineraries available to them. Take a cable car to the glaciers of the Meije for the amazing view and ice cave, embellished by original sculptures. From Chazelet, head to Lake Lérié, from where you get uninterrupted views over the Girose and Mont de Lans glaciers. Finally, don't miss Lake Noir, a wild landscape on which gentians and edelweiss form splashes of colour.
