Around Orvin, the landscape is one of dense mixed woodland and lush meadows. After Les Prés d'Orvin the scene is dominated by huge fir trees. The higher you go, the more barren it becomes. Right up at the summit there are only a few blades of grass covering the rock. Yet the view is all the more impressive. On one side you can see the chain of the Alps and the "Three Lakes", while on the other side extends the wide sweep of the Jura.
