The Tour of Mont Blanc has all the excitement of a high mountain trek, with few of the worries. Throughout its length the TMB provides beautiful views of the glorious snow, ice and rock peaks of the Mont Blanc range.
Ten passes, seven valley and three countries makes a crude summary of one of the worlds most famous mountain treks. The circuit around the Mt Blanc massif takes about 11 days to walk, so fits comfortably within a two-week holiday. This guidebook describes the traditional, classic anti-clockwise route from Les Houches and the clockwise route from Champex, as well as several variants to the established options.
Here is a guidebook that will beat the winter blues and have you planning that trip. The Tour of Mont Blanc ranks as one of the best walks in the world, and it's all summed up in this beautiful, neat Cicerone guidebook. This tour does what it says and circumnavigates Europe's highest mountain west of the Caucasus. The route is divided into 10-12 stages and officially starts in Les Houches in the Chamonix Valley. Cicerone and Kev Reynolds have produced another winner that sites well on the shelf and fits easily into the rucksack. The route is described both clockwise and anticlockwise and as usual all the information is clearly set out.
