Description of the route

Just beyond the square in Champorcher, the municipal seat, take the road on the right that winds towards the village of Grand Mont Blanc and then continues along the dirt road to Dondena. Park the car near the ‘No entry’ sign in Cort, and then continue along the farm road until you cross the stream and go up to the old royal hunting lodge, built by Victor Emmanuel II, and now in ruins, and to Dondena refuge (2192 m). A caretaker is only present during the summer months.
From here there are a number of mountain walks you can do.
