Description
Waypoints (0)

Parte di questo sentiero segue la vecchia strada di caccia del Re Vittorio Emanuele II. La strada costeggia il torrente Valnontey, attraversa una mulattiera all'interno di un lariceto e offre bellissimi scorci della valle sottostante. Arrivati al Ponte delle Thoules sul torrente del Gran Lauson comincia la parte più dura con pendenza notevole su placche rocciose interrate. A 2224 m passate vicino all'Alpe Pascieux, un agglomerato di baite in legno e pietra diroccate e arrivate poi all'alpeggio del Gran Lauson a 2506 m, al Casotto del Lauson 2588 m e infine al Rifugio Vittorio Sella. Qui in cima potete girovagare in lungo e in largo per la valle incontrando marmotte, camosci e stambecchi. Potete pernottare al Rifugio e tornare indietro il giorno dopo e fare colazione con i camosci. Se siete motivati potete proseguire fino al Lago Lauson dove è possibile vedere degli stambecchi se siete pazienti e fortunati.

HikingGreat!
First to Review

Great hike, quite some elevation gain but very doable. We continued to casolari herbert, but this part of the hike is more moderate then hard.
