Chamonix to Zermatt. Sounds easy in three words but put yourself on the line and do it, then top out in Zermatt with a 4000er. We did it á pied, no guide, and next time it's on... read more

I've reached that age where back-packing is no more. The last few holidays i've been on have been with a walking holiday company, but the one I use don't offer the Haute route and I decided to do it anyway. Never again!
