Mont Blanc Highlights Aug 2015
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
We had 1 - 2 days of clouds on the trails. Upon reaching the refuge, the cloud suddenly cleared revealing panoramic reviews of Mont Blanc.
What did you think of your group leader?
Mark was an excellent group leader. He was extremely experienced and he described a specific walking pace in the Alps as 'the alpine shuffle' - fast enough to ensure a good days walk but slow enough to enjoy yourself along the way. A exceptional leader for this trip.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Chamonix is a great town and the chalet is just 10 minutes away. On the free day, go early to avoid the queues for the Aiguille Du Midi.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I did not expect such spectacular scenery! This trip is well and truly the highlights of the Alps.
