The hike begins at B55 across from the Spar in Tende.
At first the route is a piste. Climb to B62 on the piste then up to B63.
It’s a steady but not particularly difficult climb. Although there were shady spots the route became progressively sunnier. To avoid in summer!
After reaching the Col de Boselia, the path looks alarmingly steep but only for a very short while. It became the prettiest part of the hike with much more shade, nice views and moutain flowers.
It led to the Col de Loubaira and the TV station.
The descent was easy as it was along a paved road. It was long though with a lot of switchbacks and very exposed.
The hike ended at b52. Then it was between one and two kilometres to walk back up to the village.
Duration: a very relaxed 4 1/2 hours.
