[1] Refuge capacity : 16 places (4 rooms with 4 beds).

[2] The astronomy evening includes: the presence of an astronomer who will take care of maneuvering the telescope to allow you to discover the celestial objects.

You can observe over the night, if the weather conditions are suitable. The astronomer is there to answer your questions, so that you can deepen your knowledge in astronomy.

To know

It can be cold at the Chiran, even in the middle of summer (1905 metres above sea level !). Take enough clothing to cover yourself :

long pants, sweater and minimum windproof.

Sheets are not provided, bring your own sleeping bag or a duvet. Blankets are provided on the spot.


If you have one, take a headlamp.

Water is very rare up there, therefore there is no shower. At the top of the mountain there is no source, we only have rainwater, and it does not rain often in the area !

Plan to take drinkable water. Mineral water is on sale at the refuge.
