The Chapelle Notre Dame de la Paix du Monde is located right next to the Chalets de Doran below the Chaine des Aravis on the Sallanches side. It is located on the left side of the main trail towards the Chalets de Doran if you are coming up to the chalets from the Sallanches side. 


The chapel was originally built by Louis Faurobertin who started the idea in 1949 after realizing that the shepherds and farmers working the pastures around  Doran had no place of worship and had to make the strenuous journey to visit the church in Sallanches. Work started in 1950 and was completed in 1957. Remarkably enough the work was performed by more than 1,500 truck drivers from more than 15 different countries under the supervision of Louis Faurobertin. The chapel was inaugurated on August 5, 1957 by the Bishop of Annecy after being flown in by helicopter.


We got a detailed trail description for a loop trail that visits the Chalets de Doran and the Refuge de Tournieux. This trail passes by the chapel. We also have a longer, more challenging route that goes over the Col de la Forclaz towards the Tete de Chateau.
