    From Ceillac it is possible to stay on the GR5 and go through the Queyras regional park which is afterward was the option I should have followed radther than staying
    on the via Alpina.
    The trail to refuge de Furfande is great but from there it should catch up the GR5 and not go down to Guillestre/Mont Dauphin.
    Thought i could handle the very steep negative way down to check out Mont dauphin and come back up to refuge de furfande the day after but
    did not do it..not enough endorphine yet. Avoid going to Mont Dauphin unless you want to end your trip there.
    GR5 goes through the Queyras regional park and reaches Briancon afterwards

    @ refuge de Furfande Laure the owner is little bit rough (don't like the tourists/hikers but like to get their money...)
    Rosa the friendly italian staff that works there in June 2013 for her will make your stay much nicer.
    Great location @ refuge Furfande but does not worth staying/stopping until a new owner gets in place.

    Accueil pas vraiment top au refuge de FURFANDE. Repas de mème niveau qui a laissé sur leur faim les nombreux randonneurs présents ce soir là. On attendait tous la suite aprés le potage et le petit morceau de tarte à la brandade !
    C'est et ce sera le seul refuge sur tout l'itinéraire de la Via Alpina ou l'on refusera de recharger un telephone portable...Dommage de terminer ainsi une belle étape. A noter l'existence de plusieurs gites dans les environs :
    -Gite Les Escoyères à 1h30 / 2 heures du refuge de Furfande
    -Gite Le Riou Vert à Bramousse ...à 3 heures.
