Via Ferrata of Lake of Vouglans / Climbing


via ferrata of lake vouglans

More and more people have a go at Via Ferrata, which consists in climbing on or along cliffs with the help of equipment fixed in the cliffs (metal cables, rope bridges, footbridges, ladders, metal rungs, etc.) The Lake Vouglans via ferrata is a relatively easy route but bear in mind that you need specific equipment (appropriate shoes, harness, gloves, helmet, carabiners and shock-absorbing lanyard) which can be rented on the spot if necessary.
The experience is both fun and exhilarating and the exceptional view along the way suspended above the lake is worth every trembling step!
