About Switzerland’s Haute Route (Chamonix to Zermatt)
*Sept 5th-9th (Incomplete due to early season snow. The other half will be completed in 2018)
The Haute Route is a 112mi route that goes through the Swiss Alps from Chamonix to Zermatt. Impressive scenery and a lot of elevation between Mount Blanc and Matterhorn Mtn. I got halfway through the hike before early season snow settled into the Swiss Alps. I’ll return in the summer of 2018 to pick up the second half of the route.
