Chemin du Lac de Taney

Lac de Taney, high above the Rhone Valley, is a popular hiking destination. It is situated in the heart of one of the most beautiful nature reserves in the Alps. The hikers can expect a rich variety of flora and stunning views of the surrounding peaks on this tour.
Lac Taney is nestled within a charming landscape of flower-covered meadows, rocks and dark forests. The amphibian spawning grounds are protected by nature conservation laws, but swimming and diving is permitted. The hike up to the mountain lake starts in Miex, which is reached via a serpentine road. For a short while the trail follows the main road and climbs up steeply through the forest. Immediately after the pastures of Prélagine is the highest point of the tour. The short descent to Lac de Taney offers views across the Rhone Valley and Lake Geneva.

The lake in the heart of the nature reserve is known for the wide variety of amphibians found in this ideal spawning area. Mild winters and cool summers are perfect for the rich fauna and flora. Especially in the spring, the colourful flower carpet here is magnificent: Alpine roses, lilies, monkshood and many others are growing on the meadows. But taking a look at the mountains is equally impressive. Towering over the lake are the stunning twin peaks of Jumelles and Grammont, which is part of the Chablais Massif in the Savoy Alps.

In the forest, along the northern shore, the trail leads to Alp Taney, where food and lodging are available. Leaving the lake on the southern shore, the path climbs up to the Col de Taney pass. The Sentier des Chèvres zigzags downhill through the forest. Finally, down in Miex La Flos, you will find a parking lot and the final stop of the PostBus route which returns to Vouvry.
