Photographer's Note

The hike to the Mounier summit is a magic aventure... At the early summer period, the atmosphere is specially clear to reveals the far alpine submits and the wild valleys.

At the summit, one can feel the impression of being out of the civilization as no house or human activity can be seen or felt. Looking at this photo, do you except that the croweded Nice city and the riviera are just at 1H30 from here ?

It takes about 3 hours from the small village of Valberg for a non-trailed walker to reach the summit (at about 2800 meters).

A marvellous hike you should miss if you come in the south of France !!!
