Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Western Europe, reaches over 15,770 feet with magnificent valleys of its massif stretching into France, Italy, and Switzerland.

The Tour du Mont Blanc or 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 10,000 m of ascent/descent.

It is considered one of the classic long-distance walking trails. The circular route is normally hiked over 11 days. It is also the route of an annual mountain marathon in which the winner normally covers the entire distance in less than 24 hours. Each year, 20,000 hikers follow the loop around Mont Blanc - Europe s highest mountain.

We will be trekking between & staying in a combination of traditional villages in mostly local hotels - some are simple & basic right next to nature. ???????????????? ???????? ???????????? ???????????????????????? ???????????? ???????????????? ???????????????????? ???????????????????????? ???????????? ???????????? ???? ???????? ???????????? ???????????????? ???????? ???????? ???????????????????????????????????? ???????? ????-???????????? ????????????????????.

Our journey starts with a flight to Geneva -> transfer to Chamonix. These 2 locations need no introduction. But do watch this video. https://youtu.be/GrhuaPMF8Ik

Our Trek Plan
We ll complete a distance of close to 88km over 6 incredible days. Compared to the full route 170 km, these are the more scenic sections!

???????????? ???????????????????????????????????? ???????? ???????????? ???????????????? & ???????????????????? ?????????????????????????????????
The complete Tour du Mont Blanc route is a tough trek with considerable ascent and descent on each day. We would suggest that you are a regular hiker who is looking for a challenge. If you currently don’t enjoy an active lifestyle we don t recommend this. The terrain is mountainous, rocky and rough underfoot.

It is recommended for those who are regular hikers or someone with an active exercise lifestyle. Past experience in trekking is useful. You have to love living life simply - as we aim to trek from mountain villages. Intermediate hikers ONLY who do some exercise at least once a week.

► FAQ: ???????? ???? ???????????????? ???????? ???????????????????? ???????????????????? ?????????????
Ans: No, altitude sickness generally can occur at heights over 3000 meters and all the passes along the Mont Blanc circuit are below this.

► FAQ: ???????????????? ???????? ???????????? ???????????????????????????????????????? ????????????????????? ???????????? ???????????? ???????? ???? ???????????????? ???????? ?????????
Ans: The Mont Blanc circuit is a moderate to demanding trek for any hiker, the fitter you are the more enjoyment you will get. There are sections that are fairly easy-going while other parts demand long ascents and steep pitches. you should have reasonable fitness and be able to hike between 14 to 18 km & around 1000 meters ascent a day. By the end of the 6 days, you would have done 1566 m of ascent & 6020 m of descent in anti-clockwise of the TMB.

► FAQ: ????????????????’???? ???????????? ???????????????????????????? ?????????????????
Ans: changeable! The area in the Alps around Mont Blanc has its own micro-climate and during our trekking period, we will experience all types of weather sometimes in one day!
Aug - Sept +6°C ~ 25°C

Even in summer, the weather in the mountains can be notoriously changeable. Temperatures may drop to freezing or go up to 35°C in the day. We may experience high winds, sleet or even snow at some of the cols, we may have days of cloud or uninterrupted blue clear skies. So please be prepared with sunscreen, thermals, and waterproofs.

Who do we select?
Members must have an accommodating character - as our plan may be disrupted esp. so being into the mountains areas. Weather & mountain road conditions are the 2 key factors. Although every effort will be made to stick to the given itinerary, ground conditions may change and cause some disruption and/or deviation from the norm.

Please note that this is a very popular trek which passes through small villages where accommodation options are limited, therefore we can not offer you private single rooms.
