Photographer's Note

Rochilles camp, Valloire, Savoie.

The Rochilles pass marks the end of our walk. A quick glance at the panorama on the other side of the pass reveals the Rochilles camp. These military barracks are still used today for mountain hardening.

That day, we saw a group of mountain troops that literally impressed us with their dexterity to move on rocky and steep slopes. Seasoned eye can spot a second group of soldiers practicing climbing.

The camp is served by an unpaved military road, which provides easy access to three lakes (Grand Ban, Round and Clarée) for hikers.

In the distance you can see the three sharp peaks of the Aiguilles d'Arves.
