From the Moiry hut, go back on the path on which you arrived the day before. After a two-kilometre descent, when the path intersect, follow the direction of Fêta d'Août de Châteaupré and walk along the entire length of the lake below. A short ascent then takes you to the Sorebois pass, which is the route into the Zinal valley. Don’t miss the view of the Zinalrothorn, the Weisshorn and the Dent Blanche, some of the impressive 4000-metre peaks in the Val d'Anniviers. Cross the mountain pastures where black-nosed sheep graze and make your way through the rocks to Crevache. The path descends steeply for 1,200 metres to the valley, then follows the Navizence River directly to Zinal. This is the first night you not spent in a hut, so enjoy a good shower and visit this welcoming mountain village.
