The Walker's Haute Route is an incredible trek between the two most famous mountain towns in the Alps. Travelling from Chamonix in France to Zermatt in Switzerland, you will start at Mont Blanc and finish at the Matterhorn. On the way, pass the largest collection of snowy 4000m summits in the Alps: Mont Blanc, Grand Combin, the Weisshorn, the Zinalrothorn, the Dom, the Taschhorn, the Breithorn and the Matterhorn, to name a few. It is 206 km long, will take 10 - 14 days, over 14.000m altitude gain and 12 mountain passes, in two countries: France and (mainly) Switzerland.
This sister trek to the Tour du Mont Blanc crosses unspoilt and remote mountain terrain: amazing glaciers, snow frosted summits, beautiful valleys and pastures, shimmering lakes, carpets of wild flowers and the soothing sound of cow bells.
This trek should be on your hiking bucket list.
