Synthetic plan work Overview
Born a little so improvised in now distant December 17th, 2013 with "Grisenche Valley", this idea of analyzing the main vallons and the valleys that exist in Aosta Valley took the substance, along the way, with the publication of other works related to the same topic. But, previously, since September 16th of the same year had taken start another series devoted to the analysis of this analogous and kindred theme with "ALL PASSES from PIEDMONT to AOSTA VALLEY's into SOUTHEASTERN Graian ALPS", though primarily targeted at Hills and then to step between Valleys and Walloons different. Since November instead began with "AOSTA VALLEY Southern Orographic and Hydrographic VALLEYS & small Valleys - First Part/A" a more targeted and more specific in an organic (same topographical division of the recent work with the same dascrizione in clockwise rotation from East to West and back) that had ended, after the publication of six separate and specific pages, April 3th, 2014 with "AOSTA VALLEY Southern Or. & Hydr. VALLEYS & small Valleys - First Part/B". This work was more gaunt and "telegraphic" the current, but had the advantage of their visit all the walloons existing into the Valley of Aosta. Two complementar works and apparently similar, but to propose such substantial differences, with the latter becoming more descriptive, even with the mention of Mountaineering and Hiking itineraries, and more connected to the fabric of a relative valley. So a goal more matured over time not prefixed in relation to the large amount of work to be performed and the commitment required. Purpose highlighting what has been done and what still needs to be realized is an invitation to anyone who wants to participate in the drafting of the valleys and various walloons that still have not been described, and of which you will find in the clear highlight panels, just below. Meanwhile it is to be noted that
all of the South Sector compared to Baltea was completed with the last publication in March of the page relative to "Conca d'Arpy" also Arpy Basin.
Clockwise and from East to West, starting from the Municipality of Pont St. Martin to get towards Valley La Thuile and adjacent Vallon of Little St. Bernard.
So the whole sector bordering the Valle Orco-Locana-Ceresole Reale in Canavese Zone (Piedmont), as well as the border between Italy and France with Val d'Isere and the Tarentaise Sainte Foy has been completed; including inland areas, who do not arrive at the border, but that as intermediate zones descend to the Central Valley Dora Baltea. The timing of various publications has not complied fully with the correct sequence and the same geographical succession, because improvised as aforesaid, publish the valleys early or late compared to other; this for unavoidable reasons, often in conjunction with other works carried out in several titles (ex. My Mountain, Article, Trip Report, etc.) related to the same area. For this reason we prefer here give two different interpretations: 1)- the correct sequence in a circular 360° of valleys and secondaries walloons starting from East (Pont St. Martin Common) to return to the East on the opposite or Sector North, starting from Seigne Hill at the beginning of the Mountain Chain Mont Blanc, ends in the East with that of Monte Rosa to conclude finally coming down to the border with the three Provinces of Novara, Biella and Turin (Piedmont always) on the watershed Eastern. 2)- The table of "Déjà-vu or Already Seen" are instead described the publications in chronological order, as they have been made at the time. To complete this work still lacks the entire Northern Sector than in the course of Dora Baltea, so that you can briefly outline: the two valleys Mont Blanc (Val Vény and Ferret), the two inner areas or Northwest from Courmayeur (Mont de la Saxe) towards Aosta City (Pointe de Met) and North from Aosta (Becca of Viou) towards Châtillon (Becca d'Aver), including the Valley of Saint Barthélemy, still further North the entire Valley of the Gran San Bernardo including Conca (Basin) of By-Ollomont and Valpelline. Finally the three valleys "noble", namely: Valtournanche or Valley of Torrent Marmore and still of the Cervino also Matterhorn above Châtillon, the Ayas Valley or of Evançon also Lyskamms over Verrès and finally the Lys Valley or Gressoney with the highest part Chain Monte Rosa and the foothills to the Southern border with Piedmont up to the Mombarone. About Val d'Ayas, to note that five major small valleys of its watershed Eastern with the Lys Valley are already been edited; can be attached to complete, in the course of future description of this valley. The four main focal points of this artificial division into four specific sectors, over the course of Baltea which acts as a divider between the net everything which stands in the North compared to that which is collocated to the South, can be considered from East to West the Commons Pont Saint Martin, Saint Vincent-Châtillon, Aosta and Courmayeur. But the "heart" or, if you prefer the primary pin, is to be located in the City of Aosta, the real balance of power, as incidentally had already identified 2040 years ago the Romans, prosthesis on "Via delle Gallie", but also interested to dominate all the Valleys with its secondaries small Valleys.
