Marmots and chamois love the areas around the Lac de Roy, a natural glacial lake and Gron pastures. Cows also enjoy grazing in this beautiful area in the summer season. Along the ridge, there’s a clear view across Giffre Valley, the Môle and Aravis mountains. The 360° panoramic view from the Pic de Marcelly is superb.
