The ascent of Col de Menée is an alpine experience. You absolutely must turn around to admire the view over Mont-Aiguille. Pass through the tunnel and you are suddenly in Provence, with different vegetation and the scent of lavender.
Starting from Les Oches hamlet in Chichiliane, take the D7 towards the Col de Menée.
The Col du Payet is 3.5 km away.
Continue climbing on the D7 up to Col de Menée, which separates the Isère and Drôme departments.
