Haute Route: Chamonix - Zermatt

Glacier Trek


The Haute Route is undoubtedly the most famous glacier trek in the Alps. Crossing the glaciers and high passes between Chamonix (F) and Zermatt (CH), this outstanding week-long expedition is a wonderful way to explore the prestigious massifs of Mont Blanc and the Valais. Accessible from June to October, the traverse between the two capitals of the Alps, staying in mountain huts and hotels, is at the borderline between hiking and mountaineering.

The first guide to include photo-diagrams for all the stages, this new book provides detailed descriptions of four logical combinations:-
* Classic Haute Route: the standard route in 7 stages,
* Alpine Haute Route: with the ascent of the Pigne d'Arolla, in 8 stages,
* Technical Haute Route: via the famous Plateau du Couloir, in 8 stages,
* Purist's Haute Route: with no motorised transfers, in 10 stages.

Including experts tips on preparation, strategy and gear, practical information and an historical overview, the introductory sections will help you prepare for your trek without overlooking any important details. Each stage is described in detail with a profile of the route, an outline map and photo-diagrams.

Text is in English and French languages.

Glacier Trek is the third opus in the JMEditions Haute Route trilogy.

With more than 20 years' experience accompanying clients on this magnificent trek, mountain guide Francois Matet is a true Haute Route specialist.
