Mizoen

From Mizoen - Les Aymes, road takes the GR50-54 VT (Tour du Dauphiné) that rises to the refuge of Clots: staying there to admire the huge cascade of Pisse and the view ! Then continue the climb, quite steep, to the plateau where is the refuge of Fay. The Plateau itself is a small corner of paradise with a wide variety of alpine flowers during June and July, numerous colonies of marmots near the refuge, grasshoppers, butterflies, dragonflies into lakes, but also larks, golden eagles and vultures recently from the south (about sixty). Emparis is also traditionally considered a mountain pasture: the path will be an excuse to reach out to the shepherds, their dogs and their thousands of sheep.
The departure is also possible from Besse en Oisans or the Chazelet, following in both cases the GR54.
For bikers, access is through the pastoral road (about 15km), it is also possible to borrow a suitable vehicle.
