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 on the right at the top of the village. Go on for several
hundred metres and, after the third bend, take the footpath that goes uphill to your right. This joins the path from Nant. Follow the track for a further
200 m. When you leave this track, bear right into the forest and cross the Nant de Loriaz stream (1,652 m). The path winds up to the plateau above the tree line. At Croix de Loriaz, you will see a path to the right, which comes from Le Crot. One final effort will bring you to the mountain refuge in the Alpine pasture.

Others itineraries available from Le Nant, Le Sizeray.
