Dou du Praz plateau, 2140 m above sea level, offers a breathtaking view of Mont Blanc and a 360° panorama of the surrounding mountains (Pierra Menta, Mont Saint Jacques, etc).
The start of the trail winds through the forest and then offers a clear view when you reach the plateau, a perfect spot for relaxing in the sun. There are picnic tables, an orientation table and altitude restaurants on site.
The trail leaves from the entrance to Plagne Centre, behind the petrol station at La Bergerie car park (just below the Bergerie chairlift). Allow about an hour to walk up to the plateau.
You can then walk down in the direction of Plagne Bellecôte (about 50 min walk).
This hike can also be done in the opposite direction: walking up from Plagne Bellecôte (leaving from behind Le Chalet des Colosses restaurant, at the bottom of the slopes near Colosses chairlift) and going down to Plagne Centre.
In winter, the Dou du Praz plateau is also a Nordic skiing area shared with cross-country skiers. At the top, you can do a 4 km circuit (groomed for pedestrians), going to Plan des Leitchoums on a relatively flat path.
