Towards the East you can see Mount Tantané and Mount Zerbion, while, in the opposite direction, you can find Mount Méabé, Col Fenêtre and Becca d’Aver are located in the opposite direction.
• By taking the path climbing from Torgnon to Becca d’Aver you can reach Cima Longhède, Col Fenêtre and then Saint-Barthélemy Valley, Praz Valley or go up to Mount Méabé.
It is also possible to take an easy walk up to the Col des Bornes, which is also accessible with strollers and bicycles.
The excursion towards the Cignana dam of about 30 km round trip, on foot or comfortably by bicycle along a wide and panoramic dirt road, is also very suggestive.
