Description

This route essentially follows the long-distance hiking trail Tour du Mont-Blanc.

From Chamonix it goes via Les Houches to the first ascent La Charme. Behind Les Contamines-Montjoie, the first high alpine area is reached, with the Croix du Bonhomme (2479 m) as the highest point.

After a descent to the hamlet of Les Chapieux, you reach Italian territory via the Col de la Seigne (2516 m). Above Val Veny you reach Arête Mont Favre (2435 m) and descend via Col Chécrouit to Courmayeur, which you reach after 80 km. Via the Grand Col Ferret (2537 m) you reach the Swiss Val Ferret.

Behind Champex-Lac, which is reached after 125 km, there are still three major climbs to climb: to the hamlet of Bovine (1987 m) and to Catogne (2011 m) on Swiss territory and to Tête aux Vents (2130 m) on French territory.
