The walk up to the Cabane du Montfort 
The Val de Bagnes & Verbier 
Early morning above Osieres 
Nearing Cabane Montfort 

An easy day on the Haute Route today. From Champex it's a 900m downhill stroll  to Sambrancher in the Val de Bagnes followed by an even easier walk along to Le Chable for lunch. We are then whisked ( the easy option) by cablecar back up to over 2200m at Les Ruinettes where we walk the final stretch to the Cabane du Montfort. This cosy refuge has fine panoramic views of the Grand Combin massive and the Mont Blanc massive. Nice sunny weather most of the day with any morning cloud soon burning off.
