Located in the Aiguilles Rouges Nature Reserve, the lake is often frozen over.
A unique view of the Massif and its Aiguilles. Private mid-mountain chalet-refuge
destroyed by an avalanche and rebuilt in 1990.

From the village of Argentière, take the right-hand path into the Bois du Plagnolet woods. The path meanders upwards to the Baraque Forestière cabin at 1,865 m altitude. A steep rise above the forest leads to the Chalets des Cheserys (1,998 m), a 2.5-hour hike. If you like, you can carry on to Lac Blanc, a little bit higher up.

There are other routes to Lac Cheserys from the heights of La Flegere ski-lift or from the Col des Montets.

More information at the Tourist Office, the High Mountain Office, and in our hiking guide.
Careful: path conditions may change - remember to check the latest information before setting off.
