Alps lake, le Lac de Montriond, also called the green lake, amazes young and old with its idyllic atmosphere .
Magical Alps lake
Lac de Montriond was born following the collapse of part of the mountain of Nantaux in the North West. This undated geological event with certainty (from 4500 years to 3 or 4 centuries!) caused a dam on the torrent which ran at the bottom of the valley, hence the formation of the lake. Subject to very strong variations in levels between spring and autumn, the lake was finally sealed in 1990 by gigantic works carried out by the Municipality of Montriond.
