Romans (1st century) to link the Saint-Gervais and Chamonix valleys.

At the top of the village, turn right along the road to la Cote des Chavants. Turn left up the path to the Granges des Chavants (1 256 m) 0 h 40. On the left a path goes off to the Col de Voza. Turn right and take a footpath which crosses several gullies and plunges into the forest (Vaudagne reservoir). At a bend, (1 282 m), the path joins the forest track coming from Vaudagne which climbs fairly steeply up to the col.
