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 very good! Still rather mild and sunny. Therefore we want to make use of the opportunity to enjoy a very colorful autumn hike near Chamonix. It is the Brevent Protected content , a stunning viewpoint peak to admire the Mont Blanc Massif.

This is a medium hike. Technically the hike is mainly rather easy but with Protected content of elevation it is rather long. Therefore participants need to be physically fit!

We start the hike in the forest from Parc animalier on around Protected content in the forest. After the forest the terrain becomes a bit more rocky before reaching the Chalet de Bel Lachat (which will be probably closed already) on a beautiful alpage. Then the very smooth path winds up over some more rocky but easily walkable terrain to the peak. We will have our lunch break pinic style on the peak with a really spectacular view on the Mont Blanc Massif! So everyone should bring his/her own food to share with others or to save from others :-).

On the way down we firstly need to take the same path. Just before we reach the refuge Bel Lachat we stay on the right and follow the flat path to the Aiguillette des Houches and descend through another very lovely alpage back to the parking. So it is a circular hike.

All in all this is a sporty autumn hike with hopefully giving us some colorful impressions of the mountains. We should be able to make the hike in about Protected content depending on the group size and the speed.

We are meeting on Sunday on Protected content

We should arrive at the parking at Protected content

Please stay tuned for an update here on weather and logistics on Satuday afternoon.

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


If seriously interested, please sign in here and (IMPORTANT!) indicate if you need a space in a car or can provide spaces in your car. Without this indication a sign-in CANNOT be accepted! (due to experiences in the past). Please only sign in, in case you are really convinced to join!!!
Unfortunately there are always some candidates signing in, not reacting on any message and finally not showing up! Pretty annoying that they block other candidates' spaces who really would have liked to join!

Participants needing a ride will pay to the driver or the owner of the car a petrol contribution of 8 Swiss Cent per km in an unasked way. And the peage is also being shared by all passengers. For example: a tour to Chamonix and back is Protected content and would be 12 CHF per passenger for petrol. Additionally ca. 12 EUR peage needs to be shared as well depending on the number of people in the car.
