FATMAP difficulty grade
Beginning in Salvan, ascend up the Van d’en Haut.
Although the climb is not very steep or technically challenging, it's a long, physically demanding ascent.
You climb up the deep, wild valley all the way to the edge of the Lac de Salanfe.
Head around the east side lakeshore and climb up to the impressive Glacier Plan Neve.
Descend the way you came up the glacier, retracing your ski tracks to the lake where you then turn off following signs to the Refuge de Dentes de Midi.
It’s situated on the edge of the lake on a glacier plateau, with unadulterated views of Mont Blanc, the Bernese Alps and Valais’ many spectacular 4000m peaks.
