A very restful section, always downhill and overlooked by the Monviso. From the stony ground higher up you pass into the wild Gruppo dell’Alpetto and then through the peaceful pastures of Pian Paladino and the typical hamlets of Oncino. You can notice along the way the numerous forms under which the water presents itself: snowfields, lakes, springs, sources, impetuous streams, little waterfalls and canals.
