Hint

Intro

A roughly five-hour hike along the Dorbonne mountain stream and over Col de la Forcle Pass to the SAC-run Cabane de Rambert.

Description

This stage begins in the well-known village of Derborence. If you look up high, you can just about make out the glacier tongue of Les Diablerets. The Quille du Diable or Tour Saint-Martin stands out at the edge of the cliff.

 

The trail to Rambert starts at the Refuge du Lac, a hut with a sunny terrace overlooking the lake. On the right bank of the lake, the path leads to an astonishingly large flat area called Six-Long. In the middle of the meadow on the right bank, you can see an old chalet. Another chalet comes into view on the left in La Chaux. You can stop for refreshments there in Gîte de l’alpage de Dorbon. The path goes 300 metres further to the south-east and then follows the river to the higher pastures of Pro Flouri. The ascent continues to Col de la Forcle Pass (2,612m).

 

An artificial lake built by the community of Chamoson to irrigate its vineyards enhances the wild landscape here. The route towards Rambert contours round the foot of Dents de Chamosentze, dropping slightly towards Outannes (2,500m) before climbing again to the SAC-run Cabane de Rambert (2,580m). This is the day’s destination.
