Day hike to the top of Catogne
From Champex-Lac, go towards Champex-d’En Bas to reach the mythical summit of Catogne before going down by the south ridge to reach the resort again. About 5 hours of walking.
Best period to go there
Departure from Champex-Lac direction Champex-d’en Haut (chairlift) then Champex-d’en-Bas. Turn right at La Poya and climb to the top of the Catogne. Return towards the south with a superb view of the lake of Champex.
Exit the motorway at Martigny. Follow the direction Grand-Saint-Bernard then leave the main road at Orsières and follow Champex-Lac.
It is also possible to leave the main road at Bovernier and go through Les Valettes but the road is narrow and very winding.
Large free car park at the foot of the chairlift.
Access by public transport
Take the train to Orsières and then the bus to Champex-lac.
