The Lautaret is located in the Hautes-Alpes, in the PACA region and its summit is 2058 meters above sea level.
This is one of the lowest points of the ridge that separates the Northern Alps from the Southern Alps. For a very long time, the Lautaret has enabled communication between Grenoble and Briançon to move to Italy.

When you are walking in the Lautaret, you must spend some time at La Grave and visit the oratory of Chazelet which is one of the exceptional views overlooking the massif of the Meije.
Nothing prevents you then from visiting the Ice Cave situated at 3200 meters above sea level which ice sculptures change every year and enjoy a solid mountain meal high up.

In spring and summer the Lautaret is absolutely beautiful with more than 2000 mountain plants in full bloom. The scenery is just outstanding.
The Lautaret Alpine Garden offers to visitors the discovery of a tour of world plants that go from the Himalayas to the Caucasus through the Rockies and Japan. A nice way to learn and marvel for everybody.
