Col du Chat is located near Chamonix, the mecca for outdoor activities in the French Alps. One of the perks of this spot is that the Mediterranean vegetation provides a comfortable microclimate year-round, perfect for outdoor activities.

On this occasion, we’ll use the Primrose Bear Ear Track, which is located on  Roc du Cornillon. The route takes 3 hours to complete and is 250 meters long. The starting point has an 820-meter altitude. The first part offers a breathtaking view of France’s most beautiful lake: Lake Bourget. Then, we’ll descend through an inverted ladder and a tunnel to reach the other side of the mountain, which will take us to a monkey bridge.

I also offer a mountaineering day-trip in Aiguilles Marbrées. Be sure to check it out if you are looking for more options in the area.
