Points of interest
1 La Thuile viewing point
La Thuile is not an alpine pasture at the summit, so the view, of an excellent quality, is limited to the Genevois region, Lake Geneva and the Jura. In clear conditions you can see Lausanne.<br/>To the North-East the view focuses on the Salève, notably Le Grand Pitons and the cliffs of Collonges-sous-Salève.
2 Le Grand Piton viewing point.
Le Grand Piton is the highest point of Le Salève offering a view mainly focused on the Genevois region and Jura.
