The Desert de Platé, a geological curiosity in Flaine!
Facing Mont Blanc, this 1980 acre limestone plateau is composed mainly of limestone pavements dug by glaciers and meltwater. Recognized as one of the greatest lapiaz in Europe, the Désert de Platé is accessible only on foot, which earned him the name "desert".
Classified since 1998 for its outstanding scenic interest, the Désert de Platé attracts with its extraordinary appearance. It's like "walking on a petrified glacier", "over the moon" ... the references are numerous.

The smartphone app FLAINE AVENTURE is there to help you to find your way! 
  
 
You can access the Désert de Platé by the GR 96 or by Grandes Platières cable car from Flaine. From the plateau, the surrounding peaks culminate with Grandes Platières at 2480 m. This walk (or depending on your walking path) also allows to discover stunning views of the Mont Blanc and the Aravis. And marmots, ibex and other iconic animals are often at the rendez-vous.
