    Trieste-Monaco le 5/10/2014

    Furfande est fermé en cette période. Variante pour rejoindre directement Ceillac. Par la piste forestière de la forêt de la Réortie. Si motivé remonter pour raccrocher le chemin qui suit le Cristillan en rive gauche. Sinon descendre sur "l'Ubac d'aval" puis un peu de route avant de trouver un sentier qui amène à Ceillac.

    Etape à Ceillac, au gîte "le matefaim". Appeler bien à l'avance car fermé en cette période. Chambre avec plaque électrique. Petit-déjeuner servi par le gîte. Bon accueil et présent en cas de besoin.

    /!\ Attention, en cette période plus de ravitaillement ni hébergement possibles après Guillestre jusqu'à l'Italie (Campo base). La désertification des services est bien ancrée...

    Monaco - Trieste

    2h to reach Col Garnier from refuge de Furfande, then 4h going a lot down to reached Mont Dauphin
    it is possible and i think better to catch up the GR5 in the Queyras regional park radther than taking the option I did following the Via Alpina

    Mont Dauphin has a gite le glacier Bleu, very friendly hosts (Laure and Olivier), paid 16,5euros for private 2 beds room, very clean room
    Did not ate dinner but think it really worth eating @ le glacier bleu. Highly recommanded to stay there. Another concept
    of hosting here. Own by friendly persons. Been given a fresh baguette on my departure from le Glacier bleu...

    Ceillac – Mont Dauphin : 8h30 walking, 2h30 resting, 36,9km
