This stage has a high-mountain character, with equipped passages and magnificent panoramic views: Cirque du Bout du Monde, Pointe Rousse, Lad de la Vogealle, the Dents Blanches, the Pointe de Bostan.
Standing at the gateway to the highest summits of Sixt, facing the glaciers, the Vogealle Refuge is a key stopoff point for mountaineers preparing to conquer the Grand Mont Ruan (3,040 metres) or the surrounding peaks.
A unique area with impressive rock faces, cliffs 2000 metres high, and hiking trails past numerous waterfalls.
The tour of the Dents Blanches is a challenging route in the wilderness, suitable for expert walkers who know how to find their bearings in the mountains: several of the technical sections are more like high-mountain hiking.
