Departing from Chamonix, the first stop of your self-guided tour is the sky-high Brévent pass! Located on the crest line of the Aiguilles Rouges massif at 2,368 m (7,770 ft), it dominates the Chamonix valley and it’s also one of the entrance points to the Aiguilles Rouges Nature Reserve. From the pass, the track reaches the torrent of Diosaz. The footbridge of Arlevé is there to help you cross the boiling waters. Then the trail goes up under the Pointe Noire de Pormenaz to the mountain hut of the Anterne pass, called the refuge of Moëde-Anterne, which will host you for the night.
