Lovely trail leading from Lake Salanfe to a small coombe dominated by the Tour Salière. Imposing panorama of Trient and the Mont Blanc Massif. The trail up, being northern, is often covered in snow until the beginning of July.

From the Salanfe Inn, take the path across the top of the dam. Follow the path going off to the right of the lake, which climbs a few metres. The coomb which leads to the pass looks onto the furthest section of the lake, very close to the buttresses of the Tour Salière. Do not take the path on the left which leads to Golette. Once at the foot of the coomb, the path climbs towards the pass, skirting the small Ottanslake, above which sit disused arsenic and gold mines (do not enter). From the pass, there is an imposing panorama of Trient and the Mont Blanc Massif. Herd of ibexes. Starting point for the climb to Luisin. Possibility of continuing to Lake Emosson or of heading down to Les Marécottes.
