Leaving from Monthey, the first few kilometres of the climb towards the Col de Champoussin takes place on the road to the Pas de Morgins. From Troistorrents, you climb towards Val d’Illiez before turning right in the direction of Champoussin while pedalling between the Dents du Midi and the Dents Blanches.
The Col de Champoussin allows you to discover the Vallée d’Illiez situated in the Valais portion of the Chablais. Following the river Vièze via Troistorrents then the village of Val d’Illiez, you can admire the exceptional environment of this valley nestled between the Dents du Midi and the Dents Blanches, in the ski area aptly named the “gates of the sun.” In Val d’Illiez, the itinerary leaves the main road to reach the pass situated below the Pointe des Mossettes. Expect a magnificent viewpoint!
