The Planning of the Day
The Puget Theniers Via Ferrata starts with a rock climbing relatively simple. After around 30 meters of climbing, it is time to cross the cliff and to join a huge 40 meter-high Himalayan bridge. Then, you will have to climb a vertiginous pillar. The via Ferrata will make you cross the top of the climbing needles through some amazing climbing passages and a monkey-bar bridge. You will quickly arrive to the main passage with a dizzyingly high zip line which will provide you amazing sensations.
