Main cities and villages along the way:
- Le Puy-en-Velay
This area is formed by volcanoes and glaciers. The vegetation is lush and low-growing, abounding in wildflowers. You will walk over wooded peaks and through stream-filled valleys. Probably the most breathtaking sight, for me, was the fairytale-like view of Saint-Privat after a long first day of hiking.
A typical route:
Many people plan a medium-to-light first stage of travel stopping in Montbonnet for the first night and next in Monistrol. The more confident go straight to Saint-Privat and then to Sauges. The more ambitious should plan their own routes!
