#4 of 12 in Parks in Annecy
The Tournette is a mountain in the Bornes Massif in Haute-Savoie, France. It is the highest of the mountains surrounding Lake Annecy and has a prominence of 1,514m, qualifying it as an Ultra.
It is possible to drive most of the way up, parking at Chalet De L'Aulp. From here the summit can be reached via a well marked path in around 3 hours. The final third of the climb requires some scrambling, but there are chains and ladders in all the difficult sections.

  • Pleasant hike, several hours of positive gradient before reaching the chair allowing us to admire the lake and the white mountain: sublime view.

  • Departed from the Meadows round, in 3 hours we arrived on the chair of the Tournette. From there the 360-degree panorama is sublime, from Lake Annecy to the Mont Blanc massif, the view is magnificent. The descent is sometimes more difficult than the climb, sticks would probably have been useful to us. To do without hesitation!

  • Beautiful place! The hike is a bit technical but the view is great!
  • Great views, and a demanding hike. Doable in 1 day still, if you start early enough. A must-do around Annecy!
