Throughout this stage, exceptional views of the hidden valleys of southern Belledonne and the neighboring massifs of Chartreuse and Vercors. Three passes to pass: Sitre, Loup and La Pra.
From the refuge, descend to Habert du Mousset, climb via the Col de La Sitre, then the Col du Loup. Go through the Lac du Crozet and the Col de La Pra before arriving at the refuge of the same name.
From the refuge, you can see the Habert du Mousset below. The ascent through the scree from this Habert is dizzying. It is not uncommon to come across the flock of sheep from Jean Collet's pasture in search of a few blades of grass scattered here and there. The trail joins the Col de la Sitre and the magnificent Col du Loup. This section offers exceptional views of the hidden valleys of South Belledonne and the neighboring massifs of Chartreuse and Vercors. The path then takes the direction of Lac du Crozet, where you can meet the herd in the early morning. The arrival on the lake is striking in good weather, a real infinity pool. The trail finally crosses the Col de la Pra near the water distributor built following the legal disputes of the father of the "Houille Blanche", Aristide Bergès, who had diverted the waters of the Doménon,
You will be welcomed by Nadine and Claude at the refuge de la Pra
