Overlooking the Buëch valley, Chabre Mountain is an unmissable massif of the Sisteronais-Buëch territory.
Well-known for its flight area, air competitions are often organised. Back in 2009, Chabre Mountain had welcomed the world hang-gliding championship.
It also is a massif with a lot of hiking routes. They offer wonderful views of Lure Mountain, the Écrins massif and Ventoux Mount.
A viewpoint indicator helps you to situate the different surrounding summits.
