Description

Stones like these, with round or oval hollows measuring from 1 – 30 cm are not only found in the Alps but also in Australia and South Africa. Were they made by man? For what purpose? The 11 km round trip to the "Pierres à cupules" goes from Evolène via Villa, Mayen de Cotter and Volovron back to Evolène. It takes about five hours. It climbs 800 m and then goes down again.

The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
