    The tour starts in the alpine village of Chamonix. From there, it first goes through the town of Le Tour, where a jeep road leads to the Col de Balme at 2,195 meters altitude to the French-Swiss border. From here it's off to a long, scenic single trail across the west side of the Croix de Fer and then into the forest, where it becomes rocky and very technical. Arrived in the valley of Trento, but it immediately goes back up to the amphitheater and the same name glacier and on a wooden bridge over the glacier brook. And you're standing by the mountain pass Col de la Forclaz.

    Nice tour, who would like to have it easier in the cable car to the Col de Balme pure put.
