Haute Route, Day 4

Probably the finest day of the Haute Route has to be the section from Mont Fort Refuge to Cabane Prafleuri.  This high route traverses 3 cols and with stunning mountain terrain. From the start there are stunning views of the Grand Combin along the Sentier de Chamois,  a narrow path that traverses the mountainside. Of course it's called the Sentier chamois because you are guaranteed to see these beautiful mountain mamals, just like we did today.  A glorious,  sunny day and hot at times but cooler high up. Brilliant day and our overnight at the Cabane Prafleuri.
