The Cornu lake is an altitude lake located between the Summit of the Index chairlift and the Planpraz gondola. It is the direct neighbor of the Lacs Noirs


DescriptionAbout ten minutes from the Lacs Noirs, swimming is far from guaranteed despite the temptation ! The reason is : this lake is snowy or icy almost 9 months throughout the year! It is a calm and peaceful place from which you can see most of the time, a beautiful strip of wild ibex, hanging on the walls surrounding this mountain lake.
Prices
Free of charge. You have to buy a pedestrian lift pass to access.
