R143 Rifugio Morelli-Buzzi » Rifugio Ellena-Soria
  |   4h55   |   12.3 km   |   736 m   |   1283 m

From the Morelli hut the trail leads upwards, across the Lourousa valley scree slopes to the Chiapous pass, where a steep trail descends to Lake Chiotas. It then climbs the Fenestrelle valley to the pass, beyond which, mostly along rocky terrain, it loses altitude until the Pianoro del Praiet plain. A brief climb along the road leads to the Ellena-Soria hut.
