Description

Great views over Le Sirac, glacier de Charboureou, and plenty of spots for a bivouac close to both of the lakes on the balcony.

The first is a crystal clear small lake with views over the water to the mountains.

The second is larger with a few more good spots to camp.

I took Lac Bleu first, but next time I think I'll go the other way round, as the trail from the valley up to Lac Lauzon is a bit more of a scramble, so probably easier to start up in that direction.
