    Trieste-Monaco le 27/9/15

    Longue montée jusqu'au refuge du Mont Thabor. Départ de Modane, traversée de Valfréjus. Attention rien vu d'ouvert en station pour le ravitaillement.
    Début des couleurs d'automne, la piste est également fréquentée par les véhicules qui vont se garer vers le lieu dit "le lavoir".

    Faux-plat montant jusqu'au refuge du Mont Thabor. Refuge d'hiver ouvert (non gardé),du bois, du gaz, des couvertures, encore de l'eau (non coupée) et du monde. En week-end ne pas arriver top tard.
    Merci pour ce refuge! Chouette ambiance de montagne, un tronc permet de mettre sa participation pour que cela continue.

Early autumn colors, the track is also frequented by vehicles going to the park a place called "the wash". False flat amount to the refuge of Mount Tabor. Winter Refuge opened (unattended), wood, gas, blankets, still water (uncut) and the world. Weekend did not get top later. Thank you for refuge! Nice atmosphere mountain, a trunk allows to its participation for this to continue.

    I was in Refugio "Tre Alpini" for only half an hour. The hut employees or whoever cared about us were really unfriendly. Also the food wasn't impressive.
    Either go on with the next day trip or stay at the other hut. Maybe this one is more convenient.

    Almost every possible accomodation was fully booked as I arrived in Le Charmaix. Also "Gite Les Tavernes". There is a tourist information in the center where you can ask for an accommodation.
    I was lucky and got a small appartement with a kitchen for 30 EUR in the center of the village. Contact information below. There's also a supermarket where you can buy some ingredients for cooking. Bon appetit! :-)
