Day 6 Tré le Champ to Col del la Forclaz
It’s a steady climb up from Tre-Le-Champ but the views make it worth it – once you’re out of the trees
And it helps if you have great sunshine.
The stunning Aiguille du Chardonnet.
The path climbs ever higher though never at a very steep gradient.
Looking back down the path with a great view of Mont Blanc in the distance.
It is possible to take a chairlift up the valley but then you wouldn’t get these views.
Mont Blanc again.
Feasting on dew-covered bilberries on this plateau with this view. Does life get any better?
A closeup of Mont Blanc.
The Aiguille du Chardonnet and Mont Blanc in one shot.
Looking back at the zig-zag descent from yesterday. Gosh it is steep.
Yesterday’s trail and Mont Blanc
It’s just possible to see one of the villages in the valley – but who wants to?
A small pool, lots of bilberries and the Aiguille du Chardonnet with Mont Blanc in the distance.
Perhaps the best views of the whole TMB?
Zooming in on Mont Blanc.
Even the clouds were spectacular!
Mont Blanc again.
A higher plain with the same spectacular views.
In the foreground, small succulents on the rocks. In the distance, Chamonix and Mont Blanc.
I hope you’re not getting bored of this view.
Near the top of the Aguille des Posettes.
From near the top of the Aguille des Posettes, looking towards the Col de Balme.
You can ring my bell.
The path towards Trient from the Col de Balme. The Cold de Forclaz can be seen just above the ‘o’ in Copyright
The muddy (and steep) path between Le Peuty and the Col de Forclaz.
Another representative from the Swiss Tourist Board. Very photogenic.
What a belle!
The hotel du Col de la Forclaz – popular with cyclists as well.
