An exceptional itinerary that will lead you from the village to the high pasture chalets and will give you the opportunity to discover a natural curiosity: a remarkable larch.

At the village of Bramousse, take the dirt road going up to the right at the parking area. Take this trail to reach the GR 58 in a hairpin bend (red and white markings) that will lead you to the foot of the high pasture chalets of Bramousse. Up to the 1950's, the inhabitants of Bramousse went there from June to September. From the chalets, a yellow-marked trail on the right will lead you on a short loop to see a larch, which is remarkable by its trunk and its age. Once you get back to the chalets, return by the same route.

Variant

There are two possible alternatives to keep enjoying yourself. The first alternative will lead you the col Fromage from the chalets of Bramousse (see the itinerary "Bramousse - col Fromage" on this website). Another alternative will lead you to the chalets of Bramousse and to the col Fromage (see the itinerary "Bramousse - Col of Bramousse and Col Fromage" on this website).
