« Mountain plants for use
- Bellevue, Les Houches
Bellevue" literally translated as "beautiful view" is, as its name indicates, a magnificent and magical place! Indeed, in addition to an exceptional view, there is a multitude of plants for use, i.e. mountain plants that we all use in our daily lives (such as arnica, nettle, edelweiss, gentian, ...).
Your guide will make you discover the uses - sometimes unknown - in cosmetics or in medicine of the plants of our mountains!
A "useful hike" that will make you travel through the ancestral knowledge of the "locals"!
It will also be an opportunity to discuss the fragile relationship between man and the mountain. We use its resources (plants, pastures, tourism, skiing,...), characteristics that must be protected, because they exist in a very harsh environment.
Discovering Bellevue means (re)discovering with one of our experts these simple things that make the mountain such a special place, so fragile, so attractive... A real moment of exchange and sharing, open to all.
