Points of interest
1 1
From the parking area near the hut, cross the stream and take the path that emerges on the slope of the lawn. Sustained slope from the start. Allow 30/40 minutes to reach a waterfall.

From the waterfall count 1h30 of additional walk which will lead you to the circus and the pretty lake of Catchet. Be careful the penultimate portion of the path is quite inclined with small stones (more unstable terrain) then lawn before the lake.
