Trekking - From Solalex to Derborence

Solalex - Anzeinde - Pas de Cheville - Derborence

From Anzeinde, keep going to Pas de Cheville, then cross a large open meadow.
From Pas de Cheville, the high point of this hike, you head downhill to the Derborence Valley where cows graze peacefully in the alpine pastures. You’re now in the canton of Valais.
Follow the forest path to Derborence and its glittering lake.
