Ring route - ref Chabot - ref Emmanuele II
There are thousands of itineraries in the Gran Paradiso Park, but Gran Paradiso itself is not visible everywhere. We offer one of the most panoramic route of the park.
The route begins in the valley of Valsavarenche (1834m), the first hour we go along a serpentine, along a not steep and well prepared route. Approximately at an altitude of 2200m we finally can admire the snow-covered Grand Paradiso peak.
In the hut (hotel and restaurant) you can stop for lunch.
There are several options for descent:
1. You can return on the same route that we climbed. The descent will take about 1.40 hours.
2. For those who are well prepared, we propose to pass the traverse to the second hut of Emmanuel II (2732m). The traverse is not difficult, just with few ascents. The path passes through the stones and meadows. We will reach the hut in 1.5 hours, and then we have to walk for about 2 hours to the valley.
Total on the descent to the car, we need about 3.5 hours.
Drop to Chabot hut +900.
Walking time (uphill) 2:10 h.
