Description of the route

After Eaux-Rousses, cross the bridge over the Savara torrent and follow the path that winds its way through the fields, before going into the woods and climbing back up a series of wide bends.
After a flat stretch, you will come out of the woods and find the pasture of Lévionaz Inferiore and the park rangers’ hut.
From here, the itinerary continues in the valley on a long plateau, climbs back up and crosses the little bridge over the Lévionaz torrent, before climbing up over stony ground to the highest point on the Alte Vie trails: Col Loson, at an altitude of almost 3,300 metres.
From the col, the path takes downwards, first along a traverse on the left and then, with a few bends, on a broad stony slope down to a grassy basin, from which it goes down a steep slope and then, with a gentler slope, along a long traverse that runs beside the torrent and crosses the fields to the Vittorio Sella mountain hut.
