Cabanes d'Orny and Cabanes de Trient Trail is a 9.4 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near the city of Orsières that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from April until October.
Enjoy a great full day hike among the best daytrip of the "massif du Mont Blanc" and the Swiss Alps. If you have just one opportunity to hike during your holidays in Valais, day-trip to the Cabanes of Orny and Trient should be your choice. You'd visit two mountain huts among the most famous of Switzerland and enjoy great scenic views over the "Massif du Mont Blanc". Mountain huts of Orny and Trient are quite easy to reach because of the chair lift that starts in Champex, but around 4 hours walking would be required to reach Cabane de Trient with children. Champex is a cute small swiss ski resort with a small lake and a nice view on the Grand Combin mountain that is among the giant of the Alps. From Orny to Trient the lane is close to the Orny glacier: fantastic view on crevasses and blue ice that gives you the feeling to be involved in an extreme adventure. At the top (Trient) great panorama: Aiguilles dorees, plateau de Trient, Aiguille de Tour, Purtscheller, Chardonnet, Aiguille d'Argentiere, Velan, Grand Combin, Portalet.
