From the hamlet of Charaillin in the commune of Chavornay, an ascent to Chanduraz at an altitude of 1218 metres on the Grand Colombier massif: at the belvedere, a very open view on the Valromey side; a connection is possible with Béon.
This hike, which does not go through the summit or the Grand Colombier pass, offers the possibility of discovering more private paths and panoramas that are inaccessible by car.
The steady climb of 5 kilometers for an elevation gain of 800 meters will reward you with a breathtaking view of the Lac du Bourget, the Alps, the Rhône river from the rock of Chanduraz.
The climb is mainly in the coolness of the forests of the Grand Colombier.
(Be careful, the southern end of the rock is inaccessible).
The hike follows the Parnaud nature trail on its lower part, you will discover the wine-growing tradition of the village of Chavornay: low walls, stone stairs, barns and old plots testifying to this recent past.
