Queyras

Description

Lac Mirour, Queyras

The Queyras is an Alpine region bordering on Italy. The area receives less precipitation than other ranges in France. Highest summit is the pic de Rochebrune, 3.325 m. Since it lies between two more populare mountain regions - the Massif des Écrins and the Mercantour, it gets less visitors. There is a good hike, the GR58, Tour du Queyras.
