    Variation for experienced hikers: On the northern edge of the lake there is a path that will take you to Pas de l'Agnel. Allow 45 minutes to go.

    Tourist Info: The successive peaks to the north form the border with Italy: Scandallière, Vernasque and Agnel. This place was part of the hunting reserve of the last Italian rulers.
