There is nothing more refreshing than jumping into a clear, cool mountain lake. But of course it takes a little courage. Those who prefer to stay warm can safely appreciate these jewels of the Alps from the bank. Most lakes can only be reached on foot, and they are extremely popular hiking destinations thanks to their wonderfully rejuvenating and relaxing effects. Untouched, they mirror their surroundings and the colours of the sky, while radiating a pleasant calm. What can be more enjoyable than cooling your feet in clear mountain waters after a long hike in heavy boots?
Lac de Morgins
The Morgins Lake is a site of national importance. Today, it is part water and part humid vegetation and marshland on the southern side. This biotope is catalogued in the Federal Inventory of significant national amphibian breeding sites. The area is surrounded by spruce forests and meadows for grazing. A romantic setting, ideal for a leisurely rest or daydreaming. From the lake, visitors can admire the magnificent view of the Dents du Midi summits. The water and environmental theme walk linking the Morgins Lake and Vonnes Lake in Chatel, features a dozen signs shaped like drops of water. This walk is a symbol of the friendly bonds and relationships that unite France and Switzerland.
