    The Vanoise: Day 2: From Orgère to Plan sec

    4:15 hours (announced) are necessary to link up the 2 refuges. Plan Sec is at an altitude of 2310 m for 1935 m to the Orgère. The way is not very marked but, to the sensitive places, small yellow panels give the orientation and the hiking times.

    Again today we saw magnificent landscapes compensating fully the physical spends. To the arrival, the refuge not offering a fantastic comfort (to see hotels tips) offers the view of a magnificently bloomed former sheep barn.

    We put the time that remains ourselves before the meal to profit to take a beer to the terrace.

    ---oooOOOooo---

    Il vous faudra 4:15 heures (annoncées) pour relier les 2 refuges. Plan sec est à une altitude de 2310 m pour 1935 m à l'Orgère. Le chemin n'est pas très balisé mais, aux endroits sensibles, des petits panneaux jaunes donnent l'orientation et les temps de parcours.

    De nouveau aujourd'hui nous avons vus des paysages magnifiques compensant amplement la dépense physique. A l'arrivée, le refuge n'offrant pas un confort fantastique (voir hôtels tips) offre la vue d'une ancienne bergerie magnifiquement fleurie.

    Nous mettons le temps qui nous reste avant le repas à profit pour prendre une collation à la terrasse.

    It is well worth going on one of the many guided walks. They are very informative, and will encourage you to climb higher tha you might on you own. They will give you a good chance of seeing wildlife, and the views are not to be missed
