    You will then reach the Pointe de Chésery, which marks the border with our Swiss neighbours. At 2251m, you can admire the view of the Swiss mountains and surrounding valleys.

    If you're passing through Rochassons, you can try the Fantasticable, which leaves from the top of the chairlift. Comfortably installed in a harness, you can fly over the hamlet of Plaine-Dranse at almost 100 km/h and up to 240 m high.

    Whichever walk you choose, we recommend that you :

    - Wear appropriate footwear and always take with you: warm clothing, preferably waterproof, plenty of water, sunglasses, sun cream and a small first-aid kit.
    - Do not set off alone.
    - Inform someone living in the valley of your plans.
    - Do not change the planned itinerary indiscriminately. But do not hesitate to shorten it if necessary.
    - Carry a map and even a torch.
    - Check the weather forecast before setting off.
    - In the event of a thunderstorm, move away from ridges, passes and summits as soon as possible and never take shelter under an isolated tree.
