pedestrian access

To the Plan Glacier hut (2680m) : 2 options

From Bellevue by the Col du Tricot +1100m

Either from Les Houches take the Bellevue cable (1801m), or from Fayet take the Mont Blanc tramway to Bellevue.
Follow the good path to the Col du Tricot. (2120m.)
At the col, follow a path which contours the SW flank of the Tricot ridge, (some cables,) before leading up to the Plan Glacier hut

From Gruvaz by the Miage Chalets +1550m
From La Gruvaz (1150m), go up the 4x4 track to the Miages chalets (1550m.) (4x4 taxi possible, restricted access/times for other drivers.) From the chalets follow the good path to the Plan Glacier hut.

From the Plan Glacier hut to the Durier hut (3369m) +700m
From the Plan Glacier hut, (guarded from June to September,) go to the SE ( following a path with some steel cables, passing a couple of rock mounds, to descend onto the Miage glacier. Cross this horizontally to the SW to reach the cliff at the foot of the Col de Miage, to the right of an obvious gully and at the foot of a rock spur (large red paint mark.) Climb up the rocky spur, which becomes less and less marked to the col, (steel cables near the top.)
The Durier hut is to the left By climbing the spur, stonefall risk is greatly reduced. The path is good so try to stay on it.

Variant : by traversing the Dômes de Miage
It is possible to reach the Durier hut in 2 days from Contamines by traversing the Domes de Miage.
