Description

What makes the spectacular backdrop so special is the fact that it includes no fewer than thirteen peaks higher than 4000 m – at least according to the orientation panels along the trail. And these thirteen include the highest of them all, namely the Dom, which is 4545 m high, and Mont Blanc, which at 4807 m high is the highest mountain in the Alps. This winter hike starts at Les Rousses middle station and takes you in a huge arc back down to Anzère. And you will pass an inviting wayside restaurant as well! The Tsalan’s spacious terrace is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the sunshine and the self-service buffet is anything but average. Bon appétit.
