Chalet de la Réserve de Sixt - Bout du Monde
9.1 km 310 m 290 m
départ Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval (74)
Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval offers an immense corrie of two kilometres in diameter delimited by imposing limestone cliffs from which spring many waterfalls. There are twelve in the summer, but it is in fact about thirty of these waterfalls that one can admire in the spring when the snow melts. The Fer à Cheval is a nature reserve, and it is not uncommon to discover, clinging to the vertiginous cliffs, several ibexes, as well as marmots that warm themselves in the sun down in the valley. Pic de Tenneverge (2989 m) and Tour du Prazon (2929 m) dominates the hiker during the greater part of the itinerary. The outing that I propose is easy. The only difficulty is the steep ascent over a hundred meters to reach Le Bout du Monde. But you can indeed stop before, as the beauty of the landscape is already sumptuous throughout the course. However, be careful: depending on the season, fording the numerous streams is not always easy. Therefore, I recommend that you take spare socks in case.
