This is where the n. 205 trail begins, walking up a part of which in winter is the ski-run bringing back skiers to Alagna. In about a 20 minutes walk, you will get to a fork in the road; the road on the right leads to the long-abandoned Santa Maria Mine, instead, follow along to the left until you get to the Alpe Vittine baite Then by passing through the broad-leafed woods, you will reach the large Alpe Seiwji pianoro (plateau), where you can eat It takes about an hour and a half to get there.By passing the Alpe Seiwji , on the right, you will find the wide 5a trail which will take you, in about 45 minutes, to the Bocchetta delle Pisse where you will find the arrival point of the chair lift, and beyond which you will be able to enjoy the Cascata delle Pisse (Pisse Falls) and the Pisse tarn.
