On mid September we are planing to do some hiking in the TMB area and Annecy.
We probably going to start with Chamonix, as it's gets colder out there. After we are done with Chamonix, we would like to reach Annecy. I know there is no direct bus, but I couldn't find any good information about the switch in Garvis (prices, time-table) etc.
Is it basically Chamonix->Gervis->Anncey? I know that the cheapest way to do it is a mix of Bus and Train?
After we are done with Anncey, we need to get back to Geneva. We heard the Train to Geneva is hell. Any other options?
We dont know when we going to do the moving from one city to the other, depends on the weather mostly. Is it possible to buy tickets on the spots for both transfers? or they required pre-booking?
And as a side note - We probably going to have 2-3 days in Annecy, so if anyone has a good long day hikes around it (maybe a view on the lake from the top of the nearby mountains), I would love to get some details :-)
