HOW TO GET THERE
You can arrive by taking the Valle di Champorcher regional road, passing Castello town until you reach the Chardonney district.
This final part of the valley is enclosed among Tête des Hommes, Mount Glacier, Mount Déla, Tour Ponton, Rosa dei Banchi and Bec Laris located one after another in an East-West direction.
• The Chardonney district is the departure point of the Alta Via no. 2 which leads to Cogne Valley.
• Moving upwards to the valley peak, you arrive to the Dondena Refuge, in the locality of the same name, and continue onwards until you reach Lake Miserin Refuge and Sanctuary.
• On reaching, via the public road, the Mont Blanc district, you arrive in an area with various path departure points that cover the land around Mount Avic Regional Park.
