Description

The hike starts at Chindonne, a nice auberge beneath the Dent de Valerette, accessible by car.

Several variations lead to the Refuge de Chalin.

It is possible for instance to first climb to the top of Dent de Valerette (but some scrambling is required).

Gorgeous panoramas on the Dents du Midi are guaranteed all along the walk! A bit of caution is required on the last stretch of the hike, which involves walking on an exposed ridge.

Before heading out double-check that the trails are clear of snow. One last tip: In spring, this walk turns into a wild flower paradise, a must see!
