Refuge de Platé
- Altitude: 2032 m
- Capacity: 34 People
Opening period: Open from 3 June 2023 to 24 September 2023
Romain and his team welcome you to the Refuge de Platé, a small refuge nestled in the heart of the Désert de Platé, a vast and unusual high altitude plateau made of limestone rocks sculpted by water (lapiaz) and flowery lawns.
You walk facing the Mont-Blanc chain. The distances between the refuges are ideal for family tours and you can also undertake the Tour des Fiz.
At the refuge, we like to treat ourselves at the table and small dishes concocted by our care await you for breakfast, lunch and evening meal.
