September 2022 – Due to some landslides caused by the melting of the permafrost, which affected the final part of the path (at an altitude of 3,000 meters) which from the Vaudalettaz pasture reaches the Leynir pass and given that there is debris on the section of the path concerned, we do not recommend the climb to Col Leynir pending the restoration of the path.


Description of the route

From the car park in Thumel follow the paved road and after a few metres, turn left on the dirt road that goes down to a bar. Continue across the bridge over the Dora di Rhemes, and take route 11 which goes into the valley of Vaudalettaz.
After reaching a pasture, then the park guard’s lodge, continue along pastures and stone terrain along traces of the trail until you come to two small lakes of glacial origin.

The climb continues up deposits of debris and moraine and snowfields as far as Col Leynir (3084 m).
