Comment on stage (north to south)

Carozzu refuge, is where one of the scenes in the famous French film ‘Les Randonneurs’ was filmed. Shortly after you set out, you come to a swing bridge. This is a great spot for a swim. Once across, you head up river all the way to a small lake, called Muvrella. A steep narrow corridor comes out at Bocca Di Stagnu. You stay on the high ground until you see below the car park and buildings that comprise Ascu Stagnu.

A steep descent that will take you a couple of hours leads to a forest track, where there is a row of unusual ski chalets bordering just above the ski station, your night stop.
