Go and conquer the Grand Veymont, the main and emblematic summit of the Vercors with its 2,341 meters. This unforgettable walk offers you some of the most beautiful landscapes of the Vercors.
This long hike is one of the most beautiful in the Vercors. You will gradually leave the slopes of the Col de Rousset station to reach the large wilderness of the Hauts-Plateaux du Vercors. The forest gradually gives way to pastures and their bucolic atmosphere. As the climb towards the Grand Veymont, the environment becomes more and more mineral, it is the domain of the ibexes that you will perhaps have the chance to observe. From the summit, the panorama is grand.
