We start our itinerary from Arsine and hike up the picturesque valley of the Romanche river until 2300m to reach the wild valley of the Plate des Agneaux. That particular place is the beginning of an invisible glacier, almost entirely covered with rocks. The path gradually becomes steeper and winds up until the Adèle Planchard mountain hut. From the hut, we can enjoy a majestic view over the summit of the Barre des Ecrins arising behind a rock wall.
1500m vertical from Arsine to the Adèle Planchard mountain hut (3169m) - about 5 hours.
Night in the hut.
