** Botanical HIKE and Thermal Baths!! ** Picture
Sunday, July 3rd, 2022 @ 11:00
Ovronnaz not, Lausanne
 
Let’s HIKE!!

We’ll explore the Tour de la Seya route and enjoy Ovronnaz Thermal Baths on the way back. The baths are small but in a beautiful setting.

I've only done this hike once before, a long time ago, so patience and good humour will be appreciated.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BASIC INFO:
Total Hiking Time: 4.5 hours (approx., including picnic lunch stop)
Elevation: 587 m up - 1159m down
Distance: Approx 10kms

Difficulty: Officially "Medium" but we climb 300 meters in the first 30 minutes so a good level of hiking fitness will be required. And there is a little “vertigo section” with chains, but nothing difficult. (i.e. I can do it)

But it’s NOT a stroll!.

There is a short option (4kms), starting from the same point, but I've never done it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ROUTE:

We go up on the Jorasse chair lift to 1940 meters, then climb another 300 meters for panoramic views over Mont Blanc and the village of Ovronnaz then along the ridge and up another 100 meters for views over the entire Rhone Valley and Trient Glacier. Lots of alpine flora, hopefully!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
THE ONE AND ONLY MEETING POINT & TIME:

11h00 at the ticket office of the Jorasse Chairlift.

Drive though the village of Ovronnaz and follow the signs for the chairlift where you will find a large parking area.

Please note on the board if you can offer a lift, or would like to car share. Public transport is not an option.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BRING:
Money:
Chairlift one way – CHF12 approx
Thermal baths – CHF24 approx
Combined Chairlift and baths – CHF30 approx

Water, sunglasses, picnic lunch and something to sit on - usual stuff
Sun Screen and binoculars if you’re the Botanical type.
Walking poles – there’s more down than up.

And of course, bathers and towel if you want to visit the Thermal Baths on the way down the hill

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
