Derborence – Derbon valley – Cabane Rambert – Ovronnaz

Degree of difficulty : T3

This walk departs in front of the Refuge du Lac. Pleasant climb through the pastures of the Alpage de Dorbon. From the Gîte, the path becomes a trail. Slowly, the vegetation and the landscape change to more wild and rocky scenery. The climb towards the pass from the Forcla Lake is partially on snow. The lake water is used to irrigate the Chamoson vines.

After passing the Cabane Rambert, the trail gently descends in stages. Not long after Plan Coppel, two different itineraries are available: walking down through Saille to Ovronnaz (± 30 mn) or taking the chairlift at Jorasse (difference in altitude – 567 m). You can take a look at the course on www.tourdesmuverans.ch

Another option: From the Forcla Lake – Pas de Chamoson – Alpage de la Chamosentse – Alpage de Loutze – Mayens de Chamoson or Ovronnaz.
