Around Saou.

From the village of Saou you leave through a beautiful street in the direction of Chantebise. Via a forest path you walk to the Pas de L'Estang. Along the way you get a beautiful view of the jagged rocks of Les Aiguilles. After you leave the pass you would normally encounter a small lake, but in dry periods this is not noticeable. You continue on a forest path with a beautiful view of the valley of Estang and Palloir. Then it goes back to Chantebise to reach Saou again.
