Tour of Mont Blanc - camping
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Coming over the Grand Col Ferret from Switzerland to Italy after several days with very limited views due to low cloud, and seeing the Italian Val Ferret and all the peaks in dazzling sunshine. Reaching the end of the official circuit on the last afternoon at Plan Praz and deciding to continue alone to La Flegere where we had ascended 11 days earlier.
What did you think of your group leader?
Excellent leadership of the group, set starting times and kept to them, set manageable walking speeds. Good local knowledge of flora, mountain peaks, history and local land use / customs. Good fun to be with. He also allowed (and led) two optional extra climbs to viewpoints on cols which were excellent additions to the itinerary.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Make sure you really up to this. There are long ascents and steep descents. You need good knees.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I was very fortunate to be part of a cohesive group who all got on very well together - thank you all.
