From the parking area Sciaré, take trail nr. 11 heading east, passing the restaurant Capanna Alpina till a fork. From here, always on track nr. 11, climb to the panoramic point Col de Locia (2069 m) (1h 35min.). Continuing on the same trail through the great swathes of alpine pines, you will come to the Plan de Ciaulunch, a large verdant plateau.

The descent is on a steep but well maintained path, to the Lech de Lagació lake.
