Description

‘The Climb of the Paving Stones’ begins in the Old Town of Taninges at 643 m and climbs up to the ski town of Praz de Lys at 1452 m.  Although this road is called a Roman road, it was actually built later by monks from the Chartreuse de Mélan.
The trails pass under the foot of the peak Marcelly and you will arrive to a magnificient view of
the Mont-Blanc chain and traditional alpages.
The 12 km route takes a path through the Gron valley and runs along the magnificent glacial Roy Lake (highest point at 1695 m) before reaching Praz de Lys via the Ramaz pass. 
There is also an 8 km race and a walk (7 km – 900 m). The 12 km race counts for the Courses de Montagne de Haute-Savoie Series.
