WHR – the high way Chamonix to trmant

A few words before
The WHR-Trek the trail high in Chamonix Mont-Blanc to Zermatt (called by Europeans – Haute route) is in its full 13 or 14 days (depending on the oariant at the end of the track). We do only 11 days (the full first day and cleaning). Who are all around the 50. Who's a little more (I) and slightly less (Yoram and tributary).

This trail is considered by Europeans in moderate +. It is difficult to compare the paths in the country they all (including Bill Israel) much easier than topography. The Trail extends for altitudes between 800 to 3000 meters with her and incremental decline of 12,000 feet each (approximately 1000 feet ensuring her 1000 metre and decrease in average). We do it in the foot in 2016 (walk in 5/7). The year 2016 was characterized by late snow in the Alps and already before the country had obviously, we can't do anything because large amounts of snow on some trail

Hitting the road.



WHR-יום1
The night after a flight in Chamonix Mont-Blanc. Seems nicer to do it there and enjoy the pleasures "the city the night before. At eight in the morning, after breakfast, we were already on the bus that winds up the Valley of Chamonix, and just before we open 9:00 walking sticks at le tour (altitude 1450 m) for us is the trailhead.

Start the ascent to col balme, 750 m, in le tour ski area blooming now, not very difficult and around 11 am we have been resting at the cabin it's infamous cabin in the area and we're staying abroad and there are relatively few guidelines many people, this is a common point also track TMB are much more popular holchio arrive. The track we decide to make their way between the le, the direct trient already done last year, immediately moved to col (mountain pass) await us large snow surfaces we have to go through the path here with ramp slope party and crossing snow surfaces become as complicated and a bit dangerous at first Jane broke one of his walking sticks that had sunk too deep in snow.

This section pretty much the coming directly to trient but also more difficult. The number of visitors here to nil. This is not good for quality-for narrow and rocky boulders the keyboard. We stop for lunch near a beautiful waterfall and move around a lot. The way takes much longer than planned and we're getting pretty tired of the abandoned buildings of Le Between.

From here the road descends precipitously, rain begins to descend and we draw our rain covers, for what becomes a smooth Matt us more directly above a glacier, we see far down the other side of the River, the trail nearly disappeared in lush greenery and we probably made a mistake going back but after in-depth reference map returning to where we and some after discover the decrease and the bridge which leads us to the cabin. From here, the path to the col de la forclaz is 1500מטר tall and around 4 pm we arrive at our parking tonight and let rest another unusual feet. The excellent dinner, sitting at the table next to us 3 English nice, we're replacing you politely number and find that they also go the route (most are members of the TMB should be) three (John, g. and Bruce) accompany us in orbit until his last day, but another vision.

WHR-day 2
From col de la forclaz has two options to the champex harder through fenetre de arpete and almost the route went yesterday, easier passes through alp a bovine valve which is we want to start gradually choosing easier. Immigration from here towards her a bovine valve which is quite convenient in an impressive pine forest with beautiful views to the left after reaching the maximum height (around 2050 feet), has been the small farm in the center of the meadow.

We walk in and order 3 pieces cherry pie Besides sitting in sunshine, cherry pie, who needs more? The floor in front of the Cafe fills up quickly with the TMB walkers who come across we wave the cases and move on down the mountain, away from a lot of travellers and the rise they Pant, like dogs this side looks more difficult. After the two-hour walk, a walk in the Woods and part of infinite streams flooded, we reach the bottom of the Valley, from here the road begins to climb slowly along the winding road between the villages of champex d'en bas and champex d'en haut, both beautiful and peaceful villages.

About an hour later, when early afternoon we reach champex lac Lake and 1460מטר height we sorted here in tiny dirvent arranged and are trying to find out about continuing our way for the more full high snow and it has been difficult to get a clear picture of our chances. The afternoon we spend near the Lake with a beer and check out nice but cold water and ice are an option for swimming this time for dinner we headed to work cooking dinner later-Portugal vs. Wales in the semi-finals in euro only sleepy Township we and the British trio who go with us almost the only one.

WHR-day 3
We depart from champex in relatively late hour after breakfast omelet's huge value and freshly baked bread that we prepare ourselves, don't expect us today. The road leaves the Lake end and here is also a separate what TMB (rotate and venblan) who accompanied us in the first two days it felt almost immediately and throughout the day we don't meet nor travel one way going down here in sembrancher and direction for about two hours we are going to chapters in the forest and occasionally between the agricultural fields, walking accompanied by plenty of blossoms, millions of butterflies and cherry trees which we eagerly attacked the weather today but we're not rushing hot and stroll. Sembrancher is the lowest point in that all we're doing here, 720 m in Caf? looks like out of an old French movie, we're probably the only ones who have need to ask what they want to drink this village is very beautiful and we extend a little way to go around it.

From there the road crosses the river and begins to rise moderately again between agricultural areas and forest areas, we stop for lunch at the field edge reap the way drops into the broad river we find the drop point on to slightly flushed, very cold water, then dip legs here just down the road there is a lake where the water is warmer and we leap into the water to refresh. Le chable is relatively big village, adjacent to the main road and a train station, but his own pleasure after we sorted at we take the time to shop (us three days of mountain huts) and hangs in the village of this area is the beginning of a huge ski resort extends on all the surrounding valleys and cable cars look.

WHR-day 4
Today expected a turning point in the Trek, he arises from difficulty. If so far were relatively mild days, today is likely to change. This increases, le chable is 820 metres tall, and ending the day at cabane 2450 m on mont fort, the computer.

We depart early breakfast at hotel la poste, where excellent, then jump to the bakery and we guess there is more than one way to go and some signs are confusing, we start the ascent towards le verneys church alongside the road twists comes to verbier route passes through two rural villages to the cute and picturesque Church, 1100 meters height, we arrive after about an hour's walk from there, the road cuts to the left (East) into the Woods. The road drops suddenly, what kind of confuse us but it cuts to the left and becomes steeper.

Along the walking path goes here sometimes scary-looking single bike and passing cyclists quickly. After about three and a half hours of boarding we come to clambin, a small village with a lot invested in this view we stop for coffee and cake in an outrageous price increase continues in the direction of les ruinettes station is at an altitude of 2200 m, over the tree line near the cable car station is a great feature for cyclists begin the descent down the steep descending singles all the way to le chablle, paragliding down from here also has a good dirt road course and walking trails day travelers.

Moderate way and towards la chaux Valley the center of cable stations snow stains are starting to reappear around and already you can see mont fort mountain cabane possible last-ditch effort today and around 3 pm we were at the cabin was much less painful than I thought it would be.

Sorted, bathers (2 minutes return 5 francs), a beer on the porch we, along with the British who arrived a few minutes ahead of us to understand our situation to the guy in the hut through the (col from termin station) unopened little people continued from here on out they did it (and steep) col chaux road to guide the cabin claims descent on the other side is very steep and full of snow also have two very steep stripes and the latter of which is expected to be (prafleuri) from everyone he wouldn't recommend someone who is trained and equipped to move snow. And he said the hike is expected to be at least 80% of the time in the snow and ice.  Gradually the realization that crystallizes need plan b we decide to go north on the col chassoure col vaux and from there down to nandaz Valley public transport from there to the dam below Lake dix and prafleuri hut cost we offer the program for the cabin (not much) and crystallizes a coalition of eight people from three groups, including our friends (at this stage can declare them as friends).

After there's a plan everybody relax and go to sleep alone (that is, with the British in another beer)

WHR-5
We leave after breakfast very disappointing (in breakfasts are always amazing – so bad). Climb to col chassoure at 2740 m. The way snow frozen areas dotted We wear and decrease of crampons. These so called crampons to trek, they easily dress shoes and they have little spikes down that enhance traction on ice. After an hour walk we reach col from the other side of a very steep slope covered in snow with high soft rock islands flopping.

We're trying to get going, but the marks for buried under snow, finally understand that is probably way beneath the British joined us at this point and we start walking it turns very quickly as not simple at all, because a lot of foreigners Six in a row and we're trying to go in zig zig.

First British skater John going last in line, he does it in extremely steep at first he slides his forward but later he starts to roll uncontrollably when he's hanging all over his flying several feet before he manages to stash rocks send feet and stop all stop breathing and are waiting, we are now a lot of it and our ability to reach zero after a few seconds he rose slowly and waving to us. I slid two, brief stops in stone after a few meters later everyone except Jane skaters, who who who who, once more, it's very scary, but we all get out of this easily relative to c.

The slope of the tone and after about an hour we go from snow to land damage control all wet, exhausted, frozen hands, but John also banged up correctly with some bleeding and plucking a few burn easy source geek got him and we continued. The path from here down to the picturesque and pleasant hours of pleasant verdant Valley brings us to the ski resort of siavix, where we rest and eat lunch.

A waiting van practiced beforehand with the help of Rupert, nice guide. It's a little weird that in Trek to rise suddenly motor vehicle after an hour he pulls us in the bottom of the Dam Lake dam that dix is greater in Europe, a monster that rises to a height of 250 meters. From there it is approximately 45 minutes to steep the dam's head, and another two hours to the prafleuri Hut to hut culture snow amounts around towards the cabin have to cross several snow fields. Around five we arrive at the cabin, which is at a height of 2650 meters this beautiful cabin staff friendly and the food is good, the breathtaking scenery around we all sit on the outdoor terrace and relax until dinner for the evening comes to the Valley across the impressive ibix he stayed hours grazes grass meadow indifference.

WHR-6
Our day begins with a steep and really out of our cabin. It is not long, but steep rise and cause deep snow which at 1800 metre altitude col roux we they Pant, like dogs. From there begins a descent to the Lake, something like 400 m dix beneath. On our way we meet countless marmots that grasses hopping around. It's cute and furry animal some really allows us to come closer.

When we get to the lakefront, Rupert, we meet the guide who helped us the day before at mont fort with his group say hello and walk trade experiences, he didn't take a risk and took his team down low and saut? the vehicle comes in. The walk along the Lake is very pleasant, it's something like an hour of walking the Lake is above the tree line, but there are plenty of rash around this weekend and there are quite a few day travelers along the Lake.

At the end of the Lake the road begins to climb steeply, individual travellers we also today. After about an hour and a half of the courage we get, over the line, the spring emerged with "Lunar" landscape, bare, snowy, with frozen lakes and rivers. That's interesting, different and special.

From here there is a huge battery increase created by a glacier in the past and unpleasant towards free col de chevres. The ladders in the infamous col replaced the new scales, shorter, stronger. Really not scary (well, no need to exaggerate, it's still scary, but not really). We get there after a group of climbers that have emerged from somewhere and they're slow.

From the top of the col, at 2860 m we golschm. There are plenty of radiation from the Sun, and although we are desperate hot shade. Nothing to talk about trees, so we jammed under a rock and eating lunch. The original plan, here we were supposed to meet a friend who was supposed to close. Unfortunately it didn't work out, but we're still looking around, maybe ...

Steep at first, then later, moderate returns to be steep for almost 1000 m arolla below the col during the reduction process to have green landscape-first few plants flower, grayish, then, to lower membership, pieces are initially increasing, and down, and so on to arolla already forest. Cute little town with several hotels, a small shop and a restaurant alone there is here a spectacular glacier piece.

Some us reach our British, which requires course (John drinking straight two) we've taken together in the Hotel du glacier dormitori. In the evening we eat together at the village they're trying cheese fondue and we filled with butter and cheese rosti-tasty, then we were watching the final game of euro 2016 boring game, we are tired after a very long day and survive till the end (even more boring, so we've heard).

WHR-day 7
The path leaves from Arolla begins some weird kind of Babylon, and barely visible, which runs between two houses directly opposite our hotel there are two options, one straight down along the Valley, we choose the second option, the higher is the way lac bleu, climbing a little unusual at first. The road winds along several miles of hillside that not to suffer from acrophobia is narrow and deep chasm sliced the Swiss side were some necklaces relieve hand grip, but mostly he relies on the natural balance of things.

After about an hour and a half we come to lac bleu. This is a real gem. The Lake, as its name suggests, really blue and sitting comfortably next to a pleasant meadow and some trees. Enter the same stream pours him mplon. We are one shade and eat the fruit we brought with us. Nice and beautiful here.

The Valley is now much below us, it means a long decline, first through the subway to le gouille Valley there lies at an altitude of 1450 m les hauderes. relatively large village, but sleepy something (at least when this afternoon) the supermarket rather open (although the villagers asked them not claimed) we buy groceries in excessive amount, settled on a table outside and getting us dinner, including plenty of fruit and chocolate that gosh sake.

Continue now rise towards la sage who is also our lodging point. This is an increase of just 200 meters away and we get relatively early to rest after intensive days we had for the next few days. It's important to do shorter days to give your body a rest. In the afternoon the rain comes, it is rainy days and cold meat coming. British old friend next door (just two hotels in la sage) comes to visit. Drinking coffee together and determines to go tomorrow.

WHR-day 8
Breakfast at cafe where some weird ecureuil is prepared already last night, she was waiting for us in the dining room the place actually abandoned its employees and we serve ourselves might be because we were the only guests, or maybe this way it works always in 8 a.m. we stand next to the tiny grocery (well equipped) of la sage, buy bread and hitting the road. From here we go go Brits get us after a few minutes.

The rain that fell last night and left it all wet and temperatures dropped a few degrees cooler rise and quite good starts on steep dirt road, not shortly after we pass a group of small houses, it begins to climb directly up the narrow path after about an hour we get out from the trees and move on in pasture where cows graze chubby rain starts dripping and we wear. Beyond the grazing land leveled off a bit and went through a series of basins that each one lies a small lake basins pretty swamped today and there are a lot of streams and puddles to cross at this point the rain already has very strong and fog we discussed the Convention and preserve sight.

The last step before col de tsate 2860 feet tall is a steep falling. The col itself from freezing and rain that mnisim us to the other side. We start off the col the fog was very thick at this point and we find it difficult to see the path disappeared. Once we stop, drawing maps and a compass and undecided.

We arrive at the small glacier lake is located at an altitude of 2350 metres and locate a small hut, pushed us all into her wet and she leaks but rather on the outside and we organize grub in an attempt not to get wet. At the end of the meal we leave again through her long past expecting us cabsne du is a little less than moiry 500 feet above us in (what we throw her col glimpse through the fog and rain).

The road climbs on steep battery (battery like this usually indicates a receding glacier was here) and here starts spiraling to a huge free At about three o'clock, after almost all assumed today, we come to the moiry hut du British arrive a few minutes, John little difficulty in the final phase and we got separated at this point very, very wet and tired from a busy day.

This amazing cabin in her beauty, she's glamorous and sophisticated, (although, for some reason, only one shower cubicle for men). It is a lot of mountain climbers who come for a few days and all day climbing in another area. We were drinking in a few cups of tea and lounging in front of the window of the dining room. Suddenly the sky is brighter then the sun comes out, also revealed the iceberg, which is right in front of the cabin window and surrounding mountains, in full splendor. Everyone is rushing to pull out their clothing and their wet gear to try to dry.

After dinner we invited to quiz game. John stole some English pub trivia pages is open tournament. Is a quiz, g. and Bruce, the national Israeli team all-American and Katie and Ivan (who looks 17 but has a doctorate in any field not understandable to humans) are the third team. Lots of screaming and tongue plpoli flying in space, but with a little help from the competition (on the grounds that it was not really our mother tongue) we don't embarrass ourselves too.

 

WHR-9
We wake up to morning cold and Misty cabin Windows do not see we're almost disappointed to discover that our shoes are still wet from last night at least the socks we were able to dry today we walked with the British that accompanies us in three days. We begin the descent back towards lac du glacier in the same way we came in yesterday for a very wet and part just above the Lake we cut right to moiry Lake and leads us.

This trail, the first part is very tight and is not suffering from acrophobia we go in thick fog, and see how deep the abyss below. Towards the end of the mist clears for a few minutes and allows us to see that he has a very interesting turquoise now the road starts to climb toward col l. corne de sorebois followed soreibois at 2900 m.

It's not an increase that, for very wet and the dry little shoes that have accumulated during the night faded away after about two hours of climbing the steep path we reach col is very cold here, but we stopped for a few minutes to view possible alternately between the clouds. Start off in the opposite direction and after about 45 minutes we reach sufficient comfort that the middle station of soreibois (abandoned, this time is not far off what col) having lunch outside the restaurant.

During a rain drip and gradually increase we're finishing and packing hurriedly to be down that Cone and manhole covers available. outside already hail from. Don't decide much, and we're running the cable itself and a few minutes later we're cruising down the sleeper agents. Zinal is a real gem. The Center is missing, but the exit from revealing beautiful village successfully combining new and old successfully. If you add to that a lot of green, dozens of waterfalls and snow-capped peaks all around accepted image .

We get to our hotel which is right on the edge of the village, a hot shower, aushshth us and we go out for a night on the town. There are some shops and two supermarkets. Our hotel (auberge alpina) is very nice and pretty busy, his restaurant is full all the time and friendly.

WHR-day 10
When we glance at the thermometer outside our cabin in the morning it shows 2 degrees around the mountains are covered with lots of fresh snow forecast talking about temperatures below freezing above an altitude of 2000 meters and about minus 7 for 3000 meters height also is expected to decline. We decide to change course, take a bus from here to St. luc and elevator to tignausa that shortens the day 1 and leaves us more time to deal with the snow. At least this morning there's a dilemma what to wear we put everything in a backpack.

The elevator taking quite some time to read 9 we start walking at a height of just over 2100 m. All around covered in frost and almost immediately begins to snow easier. It's probably not very popular, and ariant because we totally alone on the path. As we climb the marks growing snow covers the road. At this stage done very hard to follow the signs for, he marked here in which the markup ה"ישראלים".

The rise takes about 3 hours from here, it's really not difficult path, only in the last part before 2800 feet tall meidpass starts a steep zigzagging on pass cold and snow continued all along and we stop off for a few minutes the directions here covered in snow on the other side of the deep snow and we're watching very carefully after the path. 30 minutes walk down a half-frozen lake alongside him have deep snow crossing the corner pretty scary in here skating water rerrrrrr him we find rock group dogs dry snow, stopping for lunch cold and snow urge us back.

Immediately afterwards, we encounter a lone hiker, climber, is all in the snow when carrying bikes. It's a little weird, what is exactly going to do with them? Speak limited English is trying to figure out what. We're trying to explain. It is unclear what he understood but he turns around and begins to drag his bike back downhill.

Waning with snow decrease in height and we enter the tree line above Groban meidpass. is also the boundary between the French and Switzerland German Switzerland in all the different names, spelling changes and all things German from here go through is a beautiful forest steep. This hotel is the option weishorn unit in this huge Hotel gruben looks like out of a VAS Anderson, who sits in the heart of the village, unlike zaruri rumors there is a shop, selling snacks are spicy. The dorm, like other very dense today, the weekend has arrived.

WHR-11
This is. It's our last hike. The feeling of floating in the air. The increase begins right at our hotel, it's kind of Nice and got us to the situation. The busy day, the weather is still cold but sunny with blue skies. There are about 1100 meters here rising towards augstbordpass 2900 meters tall.

The increase starts moving in a zigzag around all forest vegetation covered still a layer of frost after the exit from the trees, about 2200 m, moderate and for rising along the length of the stream. In the last hour of climbing steep again and was made for the climb is steep falling snow and ice covered Islands a couple going out we lose the trail and climb into steep snow and dangerous thing we are marking their hands down baton twirling, back to this rocky, bmthooh, very hard.

To pass (here in Germany no longer named col) we arrive after about three hours if cold there unbelievably cool quickly and down the other side to find shelter from the wind that's our last pass this trip last glimpse back and begin to decline. There is snow and clips we see before us that other travellers are very difficult to cross them when we reach the first wearing crampons and begin to descend safely after several feet of overworking I despair, sit on the snow and surf down joram joins me and together we ' big joy shrieks. glad mraidoth the Valley and wet pants.

3 long such overruns bring us almost to the edge of the area, followed by we fold the crampons and continue to lose half an hour downstream from the US side of a small lake with a nice meadow and we get drier sites stop for lunch, we have plenty of food, but we're getting a meal there. British team joined us a few minutes later and retrieve their meal, grass, Sun stroke and can stay here all day.

At the end of the proceeding for continues here in significant concentration of free giant requires attention. In the end we arrive at one of the best views in (if not the) the matterdal Valley spread out below us, around which a chain of giant mountains, the summits are painted in white and green dronotiham, glaciers across the Valley and the top of the dom are all far below the crest of St. niklaus, his last journey. We stop without some time in front of this beauty and tpamim.

The way here drops steeply towards the way jungun we encounter a herd of ibix lying peacefully and grazes grass right on the trail, try not to disturb and move on. About an hour later (observation) we come to the end of us jungun trip here we separate from our British they stay overnight, and continue for another three days in europaw, we go from here by cable car to St. niklaus and from there by train to a relaxing day in zermat. We are pilgrims small restaurant there and available.

It is not easy to say goodbye, we're going with step by step for 10 days, sometimes together, sometimes quite a bit apart some quite bedrooms, meals, moments. We get up and walking toward the tiny cable there, those declines are invited to descend on foot to St. niklaus, an hour and a half it means 1800 meters of apas drop us already sore enough from St. niklaus. we continue to train to complete the entire WHR could make it a long walk daily through the Valley or europaw.

The journey was over, 11 days ended many ups, downs, endless, scary moments, some good scenery, more or less, a lot of pretty villages, millions of flowers and butterflies, three British friends, everyone.

Thanks a lot for the detailed summary.

There is a slight technical problem with the last picture, a huge (at least in chrome) and caused the page to be very wide (beyond the screen width) without scrolling sideways. I hope some admin will fix the image soon, but also in the Forum if it happens again, just to be able to make the scroll aside, at least temporarily.

Thank you cheer. I'm glad to be out in September.

You want to break up the lines and reduce the images.

Chrome cannot be read without a quote. That's what I did.

My problem, too, with Firefox on Mac. Also I think the source of the problem is the last picture (appears also in the beginning of the post). All other text is dwarfed by to allow displaying the last picture.

Thanks for the excellent summary.
Gave a good example of how change in plans depending on the situation on the ground.
Must not be set to show pre-populated walk and insisting to get it regardless of the situation.

ץהיי, I'm on track for 9.8, do you know where you can stay updated about the status of the snow now passes. Because according to your story seems to properly organize equipment such as crampons for this trek. I was happy to know are you a trip in early July or late this month?

Below a picture of a group that in 2013 the 15 to 25 in August and needed a crampons.  About 36 minute.

Although the question is outside the route is at methorn, but about as tall

Transitions in WHR. They start in the GRAND MOUNTET hut located at an altitude of 2,860

And end at a height of 2,695 SCH?NBIELHUT . This year's La Ni?a year with precipitation.

Because of this video, I asked Daisy chaining the WHR's question about the crampons.

If it turns out you need crampons, where (with the exception of Zermatt and Chamonix) you can buy them?

"The other place" is-WHR's day.

It is also possible to wonder maybe they went to a height of 3500 meters, where ice and snow and obstacles

Others also. I'm not counting on it not be snow in the mountain passes in the year especially WHR

Open transitions. If there's a problem of information sports shops in ZINAL AROLLA and helps.

Thank you Rabbi.boohoo

ץהיי, I'm on track for 9.8, do you know where you can stay updated about the status of the snow now passes. Because according to your story seems to properly organize equipment such as crampons for this trek. I was happy to know are you a trip in early July or late this month?

Best for catching up on the snow situation in (write/call). Not likely to be in mid-August, but who knows?

The areola and zinel sports shops

And in mid-August will not be snow in the mountain passes of WHR. No good to bring snow in August from other places

I bought a map of crampons. Good store there.

In le chable. Sports shops (surely one of the cable car that saw snow equipment, there may be other stores). This is the end of the last low before rising to heights.
