Synopsis

A guidebook to walking the classic Chamonix to Zermatt trek, from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn, described in 14 stages. In two weeks of mountain trekking you will see the greatest collection of 4000 metre peaks in the Alps and visit some of the most spectacular valleys. The route crosses 11 passes, gains more than 12,000 metres in height and is a strong contender for the title of 'Most Beautiful Walk in Europe'. This guidebook also includes the exciting two-day Europaweg - a true high-level path that carries the Haute Route way above the Mattertal and into Zermatt - a worthy conclusion to a great trek. Throughout this trek you will discover delightful villages and remote hamlets, wander flower meadows and forests, skirt exquisite tarns that turn mountains on their heads, and clamber beside glaciers. The way intrudes on lonely stone-filled corries, with marmots along the boulders and ibex on the heights, and provides a surprise around every corner.

With information and advice on travel, accommodation, facilities and sights to see along the way, together with mapping and route profiles for each stage, this guidebook is the ideal companion with which to walk from Chamonix to Zermatt.
