Ristolas is the smallest district in terms of population (95 inhabitants) but the largest in terms of size (8217 acres). It is also the only district you won’t come across by following the main road. Indeed, in order to discover the villages of Ristolas, La Monta or L’Echalp situated between 1633m and 1695m of altitude, one must leave the main road to follow a smaller one which leads to a place where the mountains are pure, unrefined and sometimes uncontrollable!
