A quick visit to Puy de Chambourguet (1520m), which overlooks the ski resort of Super-Besse in the Sancy area, on the same day I visited Signal du Luguet. This was part of my French Massif Central +1500m summiteering challenge, completed in summer 2020. After an easy approach, there is a final pull-up to reach the summit, which lies on the edge of a small, grassy, volcano-shaped hollow, encircled with a path. The views are superb, with the main Sancy massif to the NW and the vast expanse of the Cézallier area and the beautiful, round-shaped Lac Pavin to the S. I took a different route on the way back, down a steep, faint trail which took me across some rocky outcrops and boulders where I spotted a marmot. I took a wrong turn at one point, which led me much further than expected, and although I didn't encounter any difficulty, I had to cross several electric fences as to avoid some cattle and horses. So basically, once you've passed the aforementioned boulders, my advice would be to stick to the high ground and pick the trail that heads SW then S back to the starting point instead of venturing further down the inviting trail going E.
