The Paglia Orba is generally claimed to be the most beautiful mountain of Corsica.
The valley near the Bergerie de la Radule.
On the left, the Tofunatu, on the right the Paglia Orba. The normal route first aims for the pass between the two, then follows the foot of the rocks of the Paglia Orba to the right, until the shoulder. Via one of the chimneys, one reaches the long and fairly flat top plateau which one follows to the summit, not visible from this side.
