Julie will explain the use of the plants and tell you about local legends. After these 2-3 hours of hiking (about 150 to 200m of positive and as many negative height diffrence), we will then eat in a sheepfold where the sunset is beautiful. Return about 1 hour to 1h30 by a front light if departure is in the afternoon

Option : without sunset but the whole day starting at 9 am (including or not a taste of local products or a lunch in an auberge)

Other notes
come with a backpack containing water, a small pharmacy, your medicine, enough to protect you from the heat, the cold...from the snow depending on the season:)
be careful and responsible : from Quenza to the Bucchinera resort, you still have a 20-30 minute drive on a degraded mountain road which is actually private and unmaintained with many holes on which you have to pass on either side, a car that is too low is not recommended
