Description of the route

Mount Zerbion is a marvellous destination, especially thanks to its wonderful panorama. From the peak you get a breathtaking view of the whole of Val d’Aosta and its main mountain ranges.
From Artaz take the dirt track until the start of the path. After a few dozen metres, take the trail on the left that rises up into the woods and leads to Praz Carral and Champcellier Damon. From here, ignoring the trail that leads to Mont Tantané, continue to the right along trail 8, which crosses and incorporates several short sections of the private road, then reaches Col Portola, where there is a marvellous view of Valle d’Ayas and Mount Rosa. From the hill, go right to reach the top of Mount Zerbion, where there is a large statue of the Madonna delle Nevi (Our Lady of the Snow).
