Ideally, you should depart from Thyon, at the arrival of the Veysonnaz gondola. The route crosses the Combire-Meina mountain pastures to reach Siviez, in the heart of the valley. The ascent to Cleuson is uphill along a pleasant mountain track.
The return ride takes the same road to Siviez, then downhill to the hamlet of Planchouet via the main road. At Planchouet, the route takes a narrow road downhill serving the Mayens de la Verne, between the Vex bisse and the Printse, to Plan-D├ęsert before branching off to the right for a final ascent along the Djiette forest track. After this last effort of about five kilometres, there remains the charming hamlet of Verrey to cross, then return to Veysonnaz.
