Hike to Lac du Lauvitel

Difficulty : Beginner
Duration : Half a day
Elevation : 1530m

Lac du lauvitel is a Lake in the region of Le Bourg-d’Oisans which is in the Oisans region of the French Alps. This region is often considered for the Tour de France race. A couple of skii resort like the Les deux Alps are also nearby.

We started from Grenoble at 9 AM in the morning and reached the start of the hiking trail at 10:00 AM. The hike was 1hr 45 minutes long in either direction. In your path you will see many springs and you might need to cross little water, so water proof shoes are recommended.

I have a couple of pictures to justify the beauty of the place. Take a look here.https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1173354899375824.1073741840.100001039747175&type=1&l=aa21dba7c7
