Pont Valsavarenche - Nivolet

Summer path

A journey to discover step by step! The mountains often reserve surprises: along narrow paths among rocky walls it's not expected to be faced with a wide valley, where a clear stream flows sluggishly, drawing numerous meanders... The Nivolet plateau inspires indeed the perception of grandiose nature work, that fears only the man's action.

Not to be missed:

- waterfall of the Nivolet torrent
- alpine pastures
- vegetation of the cliffs
- chamois and marmottes

Path accessible with dogs from Pont Valsavarenche in Croix de la Rolley to the Chivasso hut, from the 15th of July to the 31st of August.
