A round trip in the footsteps of Hannibal Barca who would have crossed the Alps 2 centuries BC, with elephants. A very alpine course starting from the mountain pass and the refuge Petit Mont Cenis.A mixed route, between wide unpaved roads, and more single alpine trails in a mineral environment on the final part.Several passages with panoramic views over the adjacent valleys such as that of the Ambien and Etache.The arrival at Lake Savine marks the passage as the high point, at its end we find the presumed place of the camp of Hannibal and his troops. A place marked by history that leads to the Clapier pass or in good weather, you will see the valley of Susa.
