Chabod hut

Summer path

A few km before the village of Pont,nearby the Terré alpine pasture, cross the torrent Savara and, passing the Pravioux pasture, begins the climb in a scented forest of larch and stone pine, one of the favorite locations of the black grouse in this valley. After a series of hairpin bends and uphil in the forest, you arrive finally in the alpine meadow, gratified by a lovely view on the peaks of the Park, thus reaching the Chabod hut. The features are many, but the scenic and alpine aspect are definitely prevailing. From here it's possible to make a crossing at the Vittorio Emanuele II hut (detour around 10 minutes before the hut) with a pleasant hillside linking path, to then descend to Pont Valsavarenche.

Path accessible with dogs from the Terré alpine pasture to the Chabod hut from the 15th of July to the 31st of August
