Jovets Lakes (2174 m.)

Jovets Lakes (2174 m.): from Notre Dame de la Gorge at the end of our valley, follow the old Roman road and Tour de Mont Blanc trail to just above La Balme. Branch off eastwards and walk up beside cascading water to the magnificent Lacs Jovets.This is a excellent walk for snow shoeing early in the season, when the marmottes are dazedly emerging from their burrows.In the height of summer, it is also a popular mountain fishing lake. The return is via the other side of the torrent back to the Roman road.
