The itinerary consists of a pleasant walk on the right orographic bank of the Gressoney valley, sometimes through wood, at others across the pastures, and covers the villages of Alpenzù Piccolo and Alpenzù Grande, where the Walser architecture is wonderfully preserved. The backdrop of this magnificent spectacle is Mount Rose. The two villages are along the Grande Sentiero Walser, the trail taken by the populations on the other side of the Alps when they migrated to Val d’Aosta across the mountains from the 12th century onwards.


Description of the route

Near Lysbalma, just before the municipal seat, take the trail marked W, which leaves the regional road and leads up to the steep mixed conifer wood. The trail winds along the ridge to reach the village of Alpenzù Piccolo. From here, continue along the trail through meadows, climb up and cross the Pinter stream. Come down a little and continue the trail winding towards the village of Alpenzù Grande. Near the chapel, you can take the path that winds down the steep side and reaches Chemonal, in the municipality of Gressoney-Saint-Jean.
