Ceillac is well-known among summer hikers for this itinerary alone.
The Miroir lake is known for its reflections of Pic des Heuvières, the Veyres ridge or Pointe de la Saume. Surrounded by a forest of larch and arolla pine, it is a beautiful spot in any season, whatever the weather.
Lake Sainte-Anne located higher up has only mountain grassland and rock on its banks. But the view over Font Sancte and the rocky glaciers that feed the lake is a sumptuous demonstration of how much life there is in these mountains. Every year on 26th July, Sainte Anne is celebrated in a traditional pilgrimage. The event attracts the inhabitants of Ceillac and their neighbours from Maurin to the banks of the lake and to the chapel, where their ancestors would pray to the Saint for rain for their crops.
