From Les Brevieres, you will find a small footpath to the side of the Brevieres elevator lift. Follow this path up to the main road above the village. Cross the road and re-find the path that continues up the mountainside to Villaret des Brevieres. Once at Villaret, turn left and then right onto a path.
The next part is the hardest bit with a steep and winding path follow the signs for Nazonde. Once you reach the EDF pylon the walk gets a lot easier and more gentle. To continue, follow the path and after a forest section you will see a little village called Orisere. Continue along the path to the Nazonde, taking in the scenery and natural habitat. To head back, follow the signs to Villaret des Brevieres where you will walk through a field and at the crossing take the left. You will then have a small climb and will be in an area with old mown pasture terraces, you will reach Villaret des Brevieres and from here can either walk back to Tignes les Brevieres.
