Chiapili - Serrù Lake

Winter path

After parking in the confortable car park in Chiapili di sotto, next to the ski-lift or around the equipped area just ahead, continue along the street that goes to the Nivolet Hill, during the winter period it can be travelled over with skis or snowshoes. Simple route that winds between the two slopes of the high Orco Valley which offers a wonderful view over the high Valley near peaks bordering with the french Vanoise National Park. Crystalline forests of conifers north facing, grasslands covered with snow south-facing, peaks, valleys and glaciers all around offer one of the most magnificent shots of the Park alpine environment. The long and soft undulations along the snowy road will take you to Serrù Lake and possibly reach the Alp huts above it from which you can enjoy the panorama and alpine environment of the Orco valley in its entirety.
