Le Chalvet

Le Chalvet is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.583m (8,474ft) above the sea level, located in the Hautes-Alpes department in southeastern France, near the Italian border.

The road to the summit, located in the Cottian Alps, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s a chairlift access trail. The road is usually impassable from September to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 
4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. The journey has gorgeous views overlooking the Hautes-Alpes department in the Southern Alps region.
