The fortress Dormillouse, built 150 years ago, the panorama of Lake Serre-Ponçon, as well as the mountain lakes of Col Bas make this walk a gem in the Alpes de Haute-Provence.
Le sentier Blanc-Martel is probably the most famous hiking route in the Verdon. You descend into the Gorges and follow the course of the river to the Point Sublime. Along the way you will encounter the Brèche Imbert, six metal ladders with a total of 252 steps that facilitate the steep descent of this 'difficult passage' and you go through the tunnels of Trescaire and Baou. Overall a fantastic trip for experienced hikers.
This walk follows the Canal d'Irrigation de la Pisse through a beautiful forest to the Fontaine Du Loup and on to the Rocher du Joug with a beautiful view of the Lac de Serre-Ponçon along the way.
The hiking route introduces you to the protected area of the Gorges d'Oppedette. In some places the gorge is 200 meters deep. You first follow the top of the Gorges d'Oppedette along narrow paths and then descend via a ladder into the beautiful gorge, so a bit of adventure.
This walk goes through the Labouret forest that was completely planted almost 200 years ago to combat erosion. From the small hamlet of Le Haut Vernet you walk through the park Demontzey.
People are saying that the Cadières de Brandis are the guards of the entrance to the Gorges du Verdon. These dolomite rocks with a chaotic relief are called 'chairs' in the Provençal language. From the Cadières you have a beautiful view of the Verdon valley and the hamlet of Brandis.
