Description

The mountain is located a short distance from the main Alpine chain, in the section where it forms the watershed between the Po and Durance basins, on the side facing Italy; politically it belongs to France for historical reasons. The Chaberton Pass (2,671 m) dominates at the same time the Italian Susa Valley and the French Briançon Valley. Until 1947 it was in Italian territory.
Easy excursion on a very panoramic peak, on which there are the remains of the fort destroyed at the beginning of the Second World War.
The fort can be visited with the necessary precautions, also for the constant presence of ice inside the buildings.
It’s a very long hike (15 km round trip) with a good difference in height, but it’s made easier by the military road that climbs with a constant slope and never too steeply.
