Description of the route

The start of the trail is located past the village of Gressoney-La-Trinité, along the regional road 43, at the junction to Anderbätt, just past the hamlet of Selbsteg. The very first part of the route descends slightly across the natural bridge over the Lys river, locally known as Selbsteg. A little further on, walk along the beautiful houses in the hamlet of Bätt (1744 m) and then start to climb up the south-facing slope behind the houses through a larch forest. Halfway up the path, cross the small Bättbach stream and then continue uphill along the grassy slopes leading to the mountain pastures and the characteristic chapel of Sant’Anna (2171 m), which offers a breathtaking view over the Monte Rosa.
