Lac de Moiry is another great alpine dam. This means you can expect quite roads because it’s a dead end. It’s a long climb and includes a downhill section to Mayoux. This area seems very “Swiss,” in that there are a lot of very old and well-preserved barns and homes stuck to the steep hillsides. The architecture is very traditional and stereotypical of what you think of as Swiss.

Yes! This is a great route. I started late in the day and would have liked to do more exploring around the area. The town of Zinal is not far a way but it was getting dark and I was chasing daylight.
