The return from LE ROUX to Aiguilles
Day 3: 17.6km - 1000m D+ and 1278 m D-
Third day and departure from Le Roux after a good night's sleep. We switch to the northern slope of the valley to reach the village of Aiguilles.
This very beautiful hike, which is largely in woodlands, is different again from the other two, thanks to the cool air provided by the shade of the trees and the more gentle landscapes.
The route drops down to the bottom of the valley and then rises up the north-facing slope and follows the contour lines to Abriès, then Aiguilles.
Looking towards the southern slope, we can see part of the journey we did the day before. The ridges stand out against the perfectly blue background of the sky.
