Stage 5: (Tighjettu -> Ciottulu di i Mori: outward journey: 4 h; return: 4 h) It is a short stage and without major difficulty; coming down from Tighjettu you can swim in Viru next to the sheepfolds of u Vallone before following a contour line in the forest for 1 hour 30 minutes. After the valley of Focce Chialla a steep climb through rocky bars will allow you to reach Bocca Fuciale located under the imposing east face of the Paglia Orba. In 20 minutes you will have reached the refuge of Ciottulu di i Mori at 1991 m above sea level… Several possibilities are then available to you because it is early (you only walked “only” 4 hours!) You will be tempted by the ascent of Paglia Orba or Capu Tafunatu? These two unmarked routes are dotted with numerous cairns; of medium difficulty they both offer some easy climbing passages with exposed passages on the Tafunatu like that of the ledge which is vertiginous ... From the "Hole" of the Tafunatu you will have an exceptional view of the Gulf of Porto, the famous Nature Reserve Scandola and the Falasorma valley… If you chose the Paglia Orba you will not be outdone either: view of the Tafunatu hole, the Cintu massif and the whole of Balagne! Hang on tight you will take your eyes full of it ... In the evening, from the refuge, do not hesitate to slip away and walk 10 minutes south to the peaks of Ghjarghiole to enjoy sumptuous sunsets over Piana and the Gulf of Porto.
