An interesting variation for the austere beauty of the landscape, with an excellent view over the Monviso group, for the presence of places like Pian del Re (with the head of the Po) and Pian della Regina, for the orographic contrast between the Queyras valley and the Po valley, for the possibility of crossing the Buco di Viso, first alpine tunnel in history. This enables you to shorten the ring around the Monviso by two sections.
