Starting from the village of Zambla Alta, the road to the hut is 9.4km long with 14 hairpin turns. The road is totally impassable in winters. There’s a high risk of rock slide, very steep (up to 12% parts) and forbidden to vehicles heavier than 3.5Tn.

The road to the hut is mostly asphalted (7.2km). The paved part ends at a parking lot. The last 2.20 km are on an unpaved rough track closed to private vehicles. It’s very steep. Only 4x4 vehicles.
