From the village of Zinal, follow the direction of the Grand Mountet hut. The route begins by following an alluvial plain before a first fairly easy climb.
Thereafter and before reaching the footbridge of Tsina de Vio, the climb is difficult. After crossing the footbridge, continue to the Grand Mountet hut to admire the magnificent panorama of the Dent Blanche, the Obergabelhorn and the Zinalrothorn.
Rather difficult route. Possibility to eat at the Grand Mountet hut. Alpine environment.
