Tour of Mont Blanc camping
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Lac Blanc, going over Grand Col de Ferret in the snow, alternative route from Bonatti hut over Mont de le Saxe, the Bonhomme cold, Le Brevent, the flowers - but really it was nearly all highlights. First rest day took the cable cars from Courmayer to Hellbrunne to Aiguille de Midi on a clear day, an unforgettable experience
What did you think of your group leader?
Excellent. Kept us all organised, gave us tips for easier walking and knowledgeable about the area. Good pace and well spaced breaks. Support in camp also excellent, everything well organised and fed up well.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Hard work with the long downs being quite hard on the knees but the paths were generally well-graded. Expect anything regarding weather, we had cold nights near freezing and hot days of 30+C.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thought about doing this for a few years and no regrets about having done so. Be prepared to play a full part in the group and tasks around camp. You don't need to be young!
