Aiguille de Chambeyron is a fine peak in Haute-Ubaye (an exceptionally sunny area, as well as nearby Queyras) near the France-Italy border.

Between Viso and Ecrins, Aiguille de Chambeyron is the culminating point of the southern Alps, the mountains from Brian?n to the Mediterranean sea.

Several routes of interest leads to this summit, in a superb backcountry far from the crowd.
