Le Col de Bise pass

    La Chapelle-d'Abondance

    The Col de Bise, which rises to 1915m above sea level, is an ideal observation point for those who would like to admire the Jura and Lake Geneva at a glance. Its ascent is a little difficult, the relief being very marked in this part of the region.

    Located on the GR5 route, the Col de Bise connects the Vallons de Novel (in the North) and Bise (in the South).
