    Corbassière footbridge

The Corbassière footbridge spans the moraine of the Corbassière glacier, offering a superb view point for admiring this mysterious landscape of rock and ice. The bridge measures 190 metres in length, with a height of 70 metres, and links two mountain refuges: the Cabane Brunet and the Cabane FXB Panossière. Highly popular with hikers, the footbridge lies on the route of various multi-day mountain trails (e.g. Tour des Combins), but can also provide the highlight of an impressive one-day hike.
