This is my proposal for this Sunday, 18th of July:
|Date:||Sunday, 18 July 1993|
|Site:||Lac du Charvin (2011 m)|
|Altitude:||2100 m(highest point)|
|Climbing up distance:||900 m|
|Total hiking time:||5h30|
|Starting point:||Sous l'Aiguille-Manigod(1200 m)|
|Meeting point:||CERN Main Cafeteria at 9 am|
|Access:||From Thones, that can be reached either from Annecy or from St Jean de Sixt, we must take the route D16 to Manigod. In Manigod we take the road to the right hand side coming down to the end of the valley. 600 meters after "La Charmette", a bridge goes across the torrent and little after, there is a second bridge. We must still drive along this road till a site called "Sous l'Aiguille" where the road ends. There we can park our cars. The trip to "Sous l'Aiguille" will take 1 hour 30 minutes.|

It is convenient to emphasize some useful items: please do not forget to carry on (wear) raincoat, hat/cap and sun glasses, warm gloves, hiking boots or sport-footwear with thick and non-slipping sole, enough food and drinks for the own consumption. Spear dry clothes and after excursion confortable shoes are very convenient.
I hope weather conditions will allow an enjoyable excursion! Cheers! Jose.
