Pointe de Chavasse is a summit of Chablais dominating Praz-de-Lys Sommand. Its toponym, whose origin remains similar to that of the Pointe de la Chavache near Montriond, refers to a summit invaded by undesirable plants. The ascent of Pointe de Chavasse is easy and does not involve any particular difficulty, except for a very short passage on a ridge that can certainly impress, but under no circumstances be an obstacle, even for people with a fear of heights. In the beginning, the climb in the alpine pastures of Chavasse is enjoyable and the meeting with the marmots and ibex quite frequent. From the Col de Vésinaz, the trail to reach the summit of Chavasse becomes steeper and narrower. The views of the Marcelly, the Haute Pointe and of course the Mont-Blanc range are splendid. Note that the route is the same in its first part with that of Pointe de Chalune.
