Maurice Zermatten Trail
Theme and discovery trails – This walk takes you through a species-diverse area from the Combioula source through the hamlets of Ossona, Alp Lovégno, l'A Vieille and Pas de Lona to the Becs de Bosson mountain hut at 3000 m. If you are lucky, you may see marmots, eagles and chamois along the way. The walk is 14 km long, on a good path and takes 6.5 hours. However, the difference in altitude of 2300 m should not be underestimated.
