Les Hauts Plateaux du Vercors.

From the starting point you first walk through a wide dirt road through an oak forest in the direction of the Chalet des Ours. Once you get out of the forest you climb through alpine meadows to an information sign and viewpoint. Then you climb further to the carrefour du belvédère. Here you can choose to go directly in the direction of the Sapieu collet via the GR, but we have chosen to first climb all the way to the top of the plateau and follow the cliffs for a bit. After this detour you come back to the carrefour du belvédère and follow the GR93. You reach the edge of the plateau at Pas de l'Echelette. You follow the edge of the cliffs up to the But Sapiau ski lift. Here you descend to a last viewpoint with an orientation table at La Combe. From this point it goes back in the direction of the starting point.

POI 1 - Hauts Plateaux du Vercors.

The Hauts Plateaux du Vercors is a plateau in the Vercors, a mountain region on the border of the French departments of Isère, Drôme and Hautes-Alpes. The plateau is 17,000 hectares and the average height is around 1500 m. The highest point is the Grand Veymont (2341 m). The plateau has been protected since 1985 as a nature reserve (Réserve Naturel des Hauts-Plateaux) which is part of the much larger Vercors Regional Nature Park. The plateau is known as the most uninhabited place in France. There are no villages or permanent residence and no paved roads within the boundaries of the reserve. It can only be reached on foot and traversed after an hour-long climb. It is therefore an attraction for GR walkers and nature lovers.
