The walk follows the GR10 to the lake and slightly beyond. It then leaves the GR10 to follow a local route to the end of the walk. The walk is well-indicated by painted signpost indicators and in particular, painted lines on rocks etc which is typical of French walks.

As such the walk is easy to follow and there is a path throughout, although in misty conditions the section from the lake to the col (Waymark 12) may be tricky. It would be no problem with a GPS. In terms of difficulty the walk is quite suitable for anyone with an average level of fitness; children and old people are regularly seen. There are no technical difficulties, although there is a section between the Port de Saleix and the lake which is a little exposed, but not a problem for most people.

The scenery is magnificent. There are views of lakes, distant snowcapped peaks, woodland and wildflowers - it is simply superb.
