Topic - hiking and bivouacking in the Mercantour National Park area?

fuddam - on 17 Mar 2013
Am planning on a 5 day trip hiking in the Alpes Maritime with my brother and eldest son. Never been there before. Flying into Nice, and taking the bus into the mountains.

From this page ( http://www.refuge-cantonniere.fr/en/mercantour-national-park/regulations-29.html ) I can see bivouacking is allowed, but not too clear on the logic: must we be WITHIN an hour of a car park, or at least an hour AWAY from a car park? When I contacted the website, they simply pointed me at those regulations, which didn't help.

Also, has anyone done any bivouacking there? Any advice/tips appreciated.

thanks!
