Medium Hike to Tete de Bostan (2406m)
Dear hiking friends,
firstly please click the button “Read more” at the bottom and please read the ENTIRE text!
The weather forecast for coming Sunday looks quite good! Mainly sunny and upto 22 degrees in the lowlands. Therefore here comes after a longer break the next hike: it is a beautiful hike to Tete de Bostan Protected content a peak with wonderful views on Dents du Midi and Dents Blanches right on the Franco-Swiss border.
This is a medium hike. Technically the hike is mainly rather easy with a bit more technical passage before reaching the Pas de la Latte. The hike means a climb of around Protected content .
We start the hike in the forest from Chardonniere. Then the path winds up over more rocky terrain. A bit later we reach a rock face below the Pas de la Latte where we might need to use use our hands. Having reached the pas de la Latte we follow the very smooth path on the alpage leading us over the ridge to the peak.
Here we will have our lunch break pinic style so everyone should bring his/her own food to share with others or to save from others :-)
On the way down we need to take the same path but will avoid the steep and rocky section by passing the refuge on Col de la Golese.
After the hike we can have a refreshing drink on the terrace of the Refuge de Chardonniere.
All in all this is a beautiful autumn hike with hopefully giving us some colorful impressions of the mountains. Participants should be physically fit (so should be able to run for half an hour without a break!) and need to be secure on their feet. We should be able to make the hike in about 6 hours depending on the group size and the speed.
We are meeting on Sunday at 08:30am on Place de Neuve in front of Conservatoire de Musique for a prompt leave at 08:45am!
We should arrive at the parking Chardonniere around 10:00am. The coordinates are: 46° 8'25.87"N and 6°46'25.35"E
Proper equipment (especially a pair of solid hiking shoes) is mandatory! Sun protection, hiking poles and at least 1.5 liters of water are highly recommended!
Looking forward to see you
