Starting from the Aiguilles Rouges hut, the route starts with a single track through a rocky high altitude landscape. After a first steep descent to the Lac Bleu in Arolla, the trail gently descends to Evolène. You will be tempted to spend more time among the village’s traditional wooden buildings, but from Evolène, going forward means going up, and a 1,600-metre ascent awaits you before reaching the Becs de Bosson hut. From Evolène, pass through pleasant little villages and larch forests until reaching the Pravouarbote house, where the path makes a sharp bend to follow a dirt track to the Pas de Lovégno. A final climb leads you to the modern, comfortable Becs de Bosson hut with its fireplace and local specialities awaiting athletes no matter what the weather.
