 L’avis de notre ambassadeur Jules-Henri Gabioud:

“A l’écart du Tour du Mont-Blanc, cet itinéraire est magistral avec une vue incroyable sur le Val Ferret et des paysages lunaires du coté du Névé de La Rousse. Le Basset et ses Edelweiss est l’un des plus beau panorama et aussi une des portes sur la Combe de l’A qui est une réserve naturelle. Mention spécial pour le passage du col du Névé de La Rousse et l’ambiance qui y règne à son passage. Pour les plus aguerris vous pouvez rallonger la boucle avec le détour aux lacs fenêtres.”

Directions

From the tourist office of La Fouly, take the small path on the right of the office and take the alpine road to the top of the chairlift. Then continue the ascent to the mountain pasture of La Fouly and take the small path to the top of Basset. Descend along the ridge and then reach the lake and the signpost. Take the small path on the right of the lake and then join the main path under the Névé de la Rousse pass. Climb up to the pass by a stony path before going down towards a shepherd’s hut. Follow the winding path going down on the right side of a torrent up to Ars Dessus. Continue on the alpine road to the Ars Dessous mountain pasture before taking the route through the forest to Ferret. Leave the hamlet and cross 2 footbridges to return to La Fouly along the river and then on the main road for the last few metres.

Follow the direction Grand-Saint-Bernard then leave the main road at Orsières and follow La Fouly.
