  • Awesome view!!!!! Be aware that is a looooong and hiiiiigh way until reach the top of the Puy!!! But the results are totally worthwile!!!
  • Beautiful Puy has to do with friends or family. Provide walking shoes because even if there are steps all along the course with the time they have eroded and one slides easily especially if the soil is very dry. In the middle of summer do not forget hat and water bottle because even if you can do it with children it climbs a lot. The path in the middle of the trees and stairs is super nice between shade and light and this red earth, but what about this view has 360 ° that you can admire once the ascent of the steps completed. It is simply breathtaking the chains of the Puys on one side, the chain of the Sancy on the other. It is really a panorama that is worth the effort provided to get to the top. If the weather is clear it's really exceptional. Both the confirmed and the amateurs will be able to do this hike which does not take a lot of time. I really recommend that we be a tourist or Puydomois for that matter.
