|Heading down into the Turtmantal|
|The Forcletta Col|
The next few days of the Haute Route start to get a bit easier as we get closer to Zermatt. That doesn't mean the views and trekking are any less exciting. Today's section from Zinal to Gruben is full of superb views of the big 4000m peaks in The region. On view are the Dent Blanche, Bishorn, Ober Gagbellhorn, Weisshorn and the Zinal Rothorn. Just one Col to climb, the Forcletta at over 2900m. It was a cooler day with some sunshine.
