Description of the route

The start of the trail can be reached with the Stafal-Gabiet cable car. To know the opening times and for further information, please contact the Monterosa Ski S.p.A.

From Stafal, the last village in the Gressoney valley, take the cable car to Gabiet. At the arrival, follow path 6 which leads to the Bar Restaurant Adlers Nest and then continues towards Albergo del Ponte. Before reaching it, take the dirt road on the left following the signs for paths 6a and 6b. From there, the trail continues slightly uphill, entering the valley and crossing the Endrebach stream, and then gets a little steeper, until reaching a small water intake. At this point, the path climbs up a grassy slope, but the effort of the ascent is rewarded by two wonderful lakes and the view over the beautiful outline of the Piramide Vincent (4215 m) and its glaciers. From there, reach the basin that hosts the final destination of the route, the Orestes Hütte mountain hut, lying on a wide and flat terrace sheltered from the spurs of the Monte Rosa massif.
