The path starting from Arsine winds up and crosses the renowned Pas d'Anna Falque (1735m). Then we hike the bucolic Plan de l'Alpe up to the Plan de Valfourche (2048m) and head west following the Clot des Cavales mountain stream. The path gets steeper again and the last section before the hut is equipped with cables to make the ascent easier. The setting of the hut, right by a lake and in the heart of a rock amphitheater, is simply stunning.
1200m vertical from Arsine to the Pavé mountain hut (2841m) - about 4 hours.
