Alpage de Loriaz from Le Couteray

in Vallorcine
Presentation

Typical Alpine pasture landscape below the Perrons mountain chain and the Aiguille de Loriaz. When you get there, mountain refuge with restaurant and dormitories.

Take the forest track at the top right in the village: follow it for a few hundred metres and after the third bend, take the path that goes up on the right.
and after the third bend, use the path that goes up on the right. It is joined by the one coming from the Nant. Continue to find the track that you follow for about 200 m. When you leave it, go right into the forest, cross the Nant de Loriaz (1652 m). Continue by a few hairpin bends to the plateau above the vegetation. At the Croix de Loriaz, we find on the right the path coming from Le Crot and after some efforts, the refuge is reached in the mountain pasture.

Other itineraries are possible from Le Nant, Le Sizeray.
