This section follows the itinerary of a classical excursion, that is also very much frequented as a ski mountaineering path. In the upper ravine of Soustra you can sometimes meet chamois, thanks to a protected area that was established a few years ago in the nearby deep valley of Vallanta. The Passo della Losetta, which is easy, is one of the highest of all the passes touched by the GTA.
