Lac de la Blanche
Lac de la Blanche is a high mountain lake at an elevation of 2.501m (8,205ft) above the sea level, located in the Hautes-Alpes department in southeastern France.
The road to the summit, located within the Queyras Regional Natural Park, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s called Piste de Clausis. The road is usually impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 recommended. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. At the summit there’s a mountain refuge, called refuge de la Blanche.
