Intro

The Tour des Muverans is a four-day trek around the Grand Muveran peak. This little-known tour features six passes, countless mountain huts and magnificent views of the Valaisian and Vaud Alps, the striking Dents du Midi and Mont Blanc. An enjoyable trek off the beaten path.

Description

The Tour des Muverans will be a voyage of discovery for many hikers. It starts at the idyllic Derborence Lake, leading you through an area of Switzerland that few people are familiar with. The four-day trip contours round the Grand and Petit Muveran, rewarding hikers with magnificent views. The impressive panoramas feature Mont Blanc, the Dents du Midi and the white peaks of the Valaisian and Vaud Alps. 

The circular trek follows well-marked mountain trails, mainly above the treeline, over six passes and past three mountain lakes. You can stop off for refreshments or stay the night at numerous huts along the route. The trek is not technically difficult. There is one section that is slippery when it’s raining, but a detour is possible. This means that the trek is accessible throughout the hiking season. Hikers must be fit enough to walk for six hours per day. As the trek crosses several conservation areas, dogs must be kept on a leash on practically the entire tour. 

There are two access points, which you can reach by car or public transport: Derborence and Pont de Nant. You could also opt to start the trek with the last stage. 

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
