Description of the route

From the Elisabetta Soldini mountain hut, go down the dirt road for 200 m until you come to a number of old stone buildings, near which you should take the path that continues across a wooden bridge to the other side of the torrent.
From here, go across the plateau, walking alongside the torrent for about a kilometre, after which the path goes back up the mountain, amid grassy and stony slopes, until you come to col des Chavannes.
The route now descends along a dirt trail, passing through the pastures of Chavanne Superiore and Chavanne Inferiore before continuing more gently towards the pasture of Berrio Blanc Inferiore and crossing the deep valley on the mountainside on towards the pastures of Porassey, Monquet and the hamlet of Orgères, from where the road turns to tarmac until Pont-Serrand.
From Pont- Serrand, go down along the path, which intersects with the bends of the trunk road, until you come to the Miramonti Hotel, where you can cross the bridge over the Dora di Verney and reach the centre of La Thuile in just a few minutes.
