Sisteron to Rémuzat

The area encompassed by Sisteron, Serres and Rémuzat is distinguished by great rocky promontories jutting high above the river valleys. This makes it ideal for sports such as hang-gliding, as we were to discover. For walkers, however, it is benign, with a good sprinkling of villages to provide sustenance along the way.

In this section we started to suffer from various ailments, two minor (blisters, upset stomach) and one major (kidney pain). We walked up the valley of the Buëch as far as Serres, stopping at Laragne for two days on account of the minor ailments, then headed west to Rémuzat, where the major one put an end to the whole expedition.
