      A stunning and wild walk takes us over no less than three mountain passes: Col du Bonhomme, Col de la Croix de Bonhomme and Col de Fours. This was the very early beginning of mountain tourism. You can read our Tour du Mont Blanc packing list here. The national press had not yet invaded it, and there was a greater respect for the lives and deaths of men. Stage 7: La Fouly to Champex A gentle day today, starting with a walk down the Ferret valley, along a gushing river and through charming old Swiss farming villages. Do not book in June if you are planning to hike the Tour du Mont Blanc self guided and have little mountain experience.

      From the last pass we descend to the small hamlet and dairy farm la Ville des glaciers and the final short stretch to the historic Les Mottets mountain hut. The top runners amazingly complete the circuit in just 20 hours! Insurance We strongly recommend getting specialist travel insurance that covers cancellation, medical and mountain rescue. The most important prerequisites are a spirit of adventure and a positive attitude!

      Precautions and safety are serious business. Switzerland is more expensive. The top runners amazingly complete the circuit in just 20 hours! So, there you have it. Rewards that will be more easily gathered when physically fit and mentally attuned.
