This route in the south of Le Massif des Bauges offers spectacular panoramic views. Seen from the valley below, La Pointe de la Galoppaz rises high into the sky but remains an easy peak to reach and has magnificent 360° views from the summit!
Park at the Lindar roundabout and follow the wide forestry track towards the Col du Lindar (1,187 m). From there, continue along the track to the right, descending slightly then rising steadily until you reach the Chalets de la Buffaz (1,450 m) after approximately 1 hour 35 minutes.

From the chalets, you will be able to make out the summit: continue in the same direction (south-southwest) on the level path towards the Col de la Buffaz (10 minutes). From the pass, the path starts to ascend once again: go through the enclosure and continue up to the summit at 1,681 m (approximately 45 minutes walk from the col).

More information on this route can be found in our guidebook at the Tourist Information Office (in French).
From 01/05 to 31/10.

Subject to favorable weather.
