Le Balcon des Belleville hike

Throughout this hike, you have a view overlooking a large section of the vallée des Belleville and its villages. Passing by ancient mountain chalets, you will get to know the pastoral life of yesterday and today. The whole route is difficult to complete in one go. However, you can easily break the route up by walking between the resort and the villages : Possibility to do the whole trip to the Croix Jean-Claude (4h from Les Menuires) or to the TC Saint-Martin 1 station (2h from Les Menuires).
