From many peaks, valleys and Savoy roads you can see these three elegant points of the Aiguilles d'Arves which are so reminiscent of the Tre Cime of the Dolomites. Just like there, many mountain lovers go on pilgrimage to the area of this imposing symbol of the Maurienne. Going to admire them from their slope is joining one or the other of the passes that separate them but they present themselves in their best light from the Arvan valley where the Arves needles stand in a cut beauty breath over vast meadows and green hills. From the Maurienne valley, by winding and narrow roads, you reach the picturesque village of Montrond hanging on the slopes and, higher up, the hamlet of Chalmieu. The small road continues to the pastures of Plan Mortan where we park at the foot of the television relay located on the Bessey belvedere (approx. 1,900 m). We went up the small alpine track which leads to the Plan de l'Olletaz when the temperature was close to zero degrees to find the sun an hour later under the alpine chalet of La Motte (2'179 m) while we cross the Olletaz stream. It is then a trail generally well traced but made muddy and slippery by the snow fallen a few days earlier, a trail that goes up from the alpine pastures to the crest of the Basse du Gerbier.Show more
