Description :

  • Day 1 : we meet at the village of La Fouly from where we set off on foot towards the small Col Ferret. The path gradually ascends as we evolve in a mineral ambiance. A final effort takes us to the pass, which is also the border with Italy. A majestic view of the Italian side of the Mont Blanc massif is before us. We continue our walk with a short traverse to the Grand Col Ferret, a relatively easy second pass of our day. The plunging view of the Italian Val Ferret may show us some hikers engaged in the mythical Tour du Mont-Blanc... might be our objective for a future hike perhaps ? We then leave Italy behind to begin the descent, which soon brings us to our mountain hut for the night.

  • Day 2 : after a good night's sleep, we start our day with a downhill traverse to warm up. We reach the right bank of the valley and start our ascent through the alpine pastures. After a gradual climb, we come across the stunning Fenêtre lakes, which are high-altitude mirrors reflecting the surrounding peaks. We take a break in this beautiful setting before resuming our hike towards the pass, which marks the highest point of our day. Our route continues with a beautiful mineral traverse before we begin our descent back down to the valley floor. Finally, a short "bus jump" takes us back to the village of La Fouly, bringing an end to this amazing weekend.
