The two, typical of this area, are those of Dondena, just upstream of the homonym Village and that of Miserin at Lake and Sanctuary of the same name. But the other two, given the proximity, take you to the Valoon of the Lakes over Champdepraz with Refuge Barbustel at Lake Bianco (White) and the Vallon of Urtier with Refuge
(Dream of the Shepherd) at the Alp of Péradza, just below the Finestra (Window) of Champorcher. The first is reached, entering the
, bypassing the Colle del Lago Bianco and with a small slope, the second allows an easy connection with both the Miserin that with Dondena Village. Both are heavily used by hikers for their trekkings or just to small crossings. It is also possible to reach the new Refuge Borroz Rotary Upper Comba Tersiva, but here the distances increase greatly. All the walloons of the district have a substantial number of pastures whereas pastoralism is widespread both cows with sheep and goats, but it is well to recall that the same are private and mostly closed in winter. No pets emergencies and certainly not the common use, because the same belong to private property. Even the Shrines, like that of Santa Anna in the North or the Re Tempio (King Temple) in Southeast, allow the visit, but not hospitalization. Conversely areas frequented are already somewhat limited in the summer season, given the length of the approach, while in winter the white snow and the great silences mastered the entire valley. Except in the area of Larìs at the Gran Cimetta where they feel the "rings" joy of skiers and the Royal Route that leads to Dondena, where you practice the Ski-Mountaineering and are all the rage Snowshoeing. For the rest here only dominates Him,
, which in the bad season here is repaired by placing its white blankets between the Rosa dei Banchi and Mont Glacier, waiting to see arriving from the Plain of the Po of the
In tutta la Valle di Champorcher esiston due soli rifugi, ma la stessa ne può utilizzare quattro. I due, propri di questo territorio, son quelli di Dondena, appena a monte dello omonimo Villaggio, e quello del Miserin presso il Lago e Santuario con lo stesso nome. Ma altri due, vista la vicinanza, permettono d'accedere al Vallone dei Laghi sopra Champdepraz con il Rifugio Barbustel presso il Lago Bianco ed al Vallone di Urtier con il Rifugio "Sogno di Berdzé" (Sogno del Pastore) presso l'Alpe di Peradzà, appena al di sotto della Finestra di Champorcher. Il primo si raggiunge, entrando nel Parco Naturale del Monte Avic, scavalcando il Colle del Lago Bianco e con una breve discesa, il secondo permette un facile collegamento sia con il Miserino che con Dondena. Entrambi sono molto utilizzati dagli Escursionisti per i loro trekkings o semplicemente per piccole traversate. Inoltre é possibile raggiungere il nuovo Rifugio Borroz del Rotary nell'Alta comba Tersiva, ma qui le distanze aumentano notevolmente. Tutti i valloni del circondario possiedono un notevole numero di alpeggi considerando che la pastorizia é molto diffusa sia con mucche che con pecore e capre, ma é bene qui ricordare che i medesimi sono privati e per la maggior parte chiusi anche in inverno. Sono ammesse esclusivamente le emergenze e non certamente l'utilizzo comune, poiché i medesimi appartengono a proprietà private. Anche i Santuari, come quello di Santa Anna a Settentrione o di Re Tempio a Sudest, permettono la visita, ma non il ricovero. Per contro le zone frequentate sono alquanto limitate già con la bella stagione, vista la lunghezza degli avvicinamenti, mentre d'inverno il bianco della neve ed i grandi silenzi padroneggiano l'intera vallata. Tranne che nella zona del Larìs presso la Gran Cimetta dalla quale si senton provenir "squilli" di gioia degli sciatori e sulla Strada Reale che porta a Dondena, dove si pratica lo Sci-Alpinismo e van di moda le Racchette da neve. Per il resto qui domina solo Lui, "Nonno Inverno", che nella cattiva stagione qui si ripara adagiando le sue coltri bianche tra la Rosa dei Banchi ed il Mont Glacier, in attesa di vedere arrivare dalla Pianura del Po il Vento della Primavera, che tornerà a tingere nuovamente l'intera valle d'un verde smagliante.
