Day 11 La Flegeren to Les Houches

The final day gives you amazing views across the valley to mount Blanc and up the Mer De Glace. The route is a continuation along the Grand Balcon Sud contouring a long the side of the hill until reaching Planpraz. Here the route heads up to the Col du Brevent (2368m) where there is a big cairn.

The route heads left over a ridge and then along a section of ladders take you over some rocks. Here you join a rough vehicle track, turn right and head up to reach the Telefrique at LeBrevent (2525m).

The path heads off towards Bellachat, here there is the small Refuge de Bellachat with magnificent views across to Mont Blanc.

There is a route down to Chamonix here but the main route heads right to Les Houches. It starts steeply but soon becomes more gentle as it descends through pine forests behind the Merlet Animal Park to the road, cross the valley floor into Les Houches and the end of the Tour du Mont Blanc
