Towards le Trétien, kilometer 10.567

After Finhaut, the track enters a forest. The railway is the only motorized transportation to the next village, le Trétien. The only road, called route de la Cha, once used by stagecoaches, is not paved and not open to motorists. It is a nice hiking route however...

The longest tunnel of the line is located on this section: grand tunnel de Lachat (579.52 m).
