Description of the route

From Courmayeur, take the municipal road that leads to Dolonne.
After you leave the village, take the path on the right that goes up, with some steep stretches, to Praz Neyron, where you will find the “Le Randonneur” stop-off point, and just a little further ahead, the Maison Vielle mountain hut.
From here, the path climbs up again, runs alongside two little alpine lakes and crosses the pastureland until a stony mountainside, from where it starts to go down, touching upon the two pastures of Arp Vielle Superiore and Arp Vielle Inferiore, until it comes out onto the dirt road at the bottom of the valley.
Go along the dirt road, up the plain of Combal Lake and along the final stretch of path that intersects with the road and leads to the Elisabetta Soldini mountain hut.
