Yeti - Thru Hikes

TMB

Tour Du Mont Blanc. TMB is one of the most popular long distance walks in Europe. It circles the Mont Blanc Massif covering a distance of roughly 170 km with 10 km of ascent/descent and passes through parts of Switzerland, Italy and France. It is considered one of the classic long distance walking trails. You'll need more than one phrasebook on this high-mountain circuit, which crosses three international borders and circles 15,770-foot Mont Blanc. But even armed with a handful of languages, you'll struggle for words to describe the ridiculously beautiful vistas gracing this journey. It dips into France, Italy, and Switzerland, with steep, snow-frosted mountains towering 10,000 feet over the valleys all the while. From ancient cobblestones to dirt trails, the route tops seven alpine passes. In France, you'll hike along the foot of the hulking Glacier de Bionnassay and pass the Baroque chapel of Notre Dame de la Gorge before gaining the 7,600-foot Col du Bonhomme, where an alpine hut looks out over a seemingly impenetrable nest of jagged peaks. The route then drops into Italy's Aosta region for a day and the medieval village of Courmayeur before heading into Switzerland, where geraniums bedeck the wooden chalets and cattle graze orchid-studded grasses. Then it's back to France and the 7,230-foot Col du Balme, the trek's last pass just 10 miles from Mont Blanc's summit
