Grand Combin from Sentier de Chamois 

For me the finest day of the Walkers Haute Route has to be the section from Cabane Montfort to Prafleuri. High trails, wilderness, stunning mountain scenery and beautiful wildlife are the key ingrediants for a memorable time in the hills. We we're blessed with excellent,  sunny weather and not too hot. An early start to get the best light and for spotting Ibex, Chamois and a young Eagle. There was a full moon overnight which was still visibile this morning. There are 3 cols to traverse, the finest being the Sentier de Chamois.  It lived up to it's namesake.  We  saw many ibex aswell as Chamois.  All along are stunning views of the Grand Combin and the Mont Blanc range. We were at Prafleuri by mid afternoon and nice to sit outside in the sun, looking at even more Ibex.
