Great loop trail with some fun scrambly bits and a nice cave along the way

Beautiful views at the peak, but not much to see during the hike itself; Great hike if you’re in the area and want cardio with a view

Hard walk but worth it...

Amazing hike in terms of variation of difficulty and terrain. Forested areas, amazing views, and plenty of rest points.

A very good hike with majestic views!! Not ideal for hammock camping so bring a TENT!!!

Sentiers menant à des plages désertes! Les couchés de soleil sont à couper le souffle!

Petite balade bien originale! J’ai adoré les escaliers! À voir si vous passez dans le coin de Bonifacio!

Perfect walk. Based around a beautiful French village; the trail takes you into the hills beyond the village with long views from a ridge before dropping back along a river into the village.

A wonderful trail that runs along portions of the TMB. Plenty to see...waterfalls, livestock, and a lake at the summit. beautiful views and places to stop for lunch/beer. The second half of the trek in is above treelike bring sunscreen.

Très beau points de vue !

Grandiose !

Spectacular day hiking here toward mer du glace.

First whole day in Chamonix and we picked a winner of a day to hike. Bluebird skies and nice temps. Constantly looking at Mont Blanc while hiking from Flegere to Plan Praz. Get to câble lift early to avoid lines waiting to head up.

One of the best views of the Corsica Coast. Very rugged and isolated. The climb is not hard, just a bit long and last part harder; well worth it, the views, Colors and landscape is amazing. Go, do it!

Perfect trail, not difficult but a lot of up and down with the relief.
Beautiful small harbors and wild area

Superbe balade

Much harder than it seems. The climb/descent between port pin and port d’en vau is really hard.
Bring a lot of water.

Could not complete the hike due to waterlevel in the tunnels.

Easy hike to the top of the tallest volcano overlooking Clermont-Ferrand in the Auvergne region of central France. Views from the top are awesome with this being a gorgeous area of France. (I was there on business and was very surprised at how beautiful this area is.) Alternatively, there is a train that takes tourists to the top to enjoy the views without the hike, but that takes a bunch of the fun out of it.

Slow start along the ski chairs, but it gets much better once you get to the crest. Nice views.

Having this map downloaded saved me on day three of my hike. I was going over Col de la Seigne alone and in very bad weather. It was the beginning of June so the trail at that altitude was still completely obscured by snow. It was pouring rain and there were heavy clouds so visibility was only a few meters. I would pull out my phone and check my location in relation to the trail every five minutes. I safely made it to Refuge Elisabetta and was so grateful for this map!!

Was a nice little walk that featured hot weather and dry ground on the way up. Most difficult part outside of a lack of fitness was the caterpillars that hung from a spiderweb like silk over the path. The view from the top was gorgeous and I gotta say was worth the walk

Really tough climb after many days on the TMB.
Views were stunning!!
Keep going up as you’ll see many lakes before the actual Lac Blanc.

Four of us did TMB counterclockwise in July starting from Les Houches. We completed the loop in 10 days/9 refuges (or auberges) without taking any bus/train/cable car. We are in our mid-50s. We each carried a 35-40 cubic liter backpack weighing 20-25 lbs including lunch and water. With proper preparation and conditioning, most people can do this.

And one can book all the refuges and make other arrangements by him/herself without needing help from commercial companies.

A must do in Chamonix!

If I wasn’t so darn old (71) my knee might not have blown out on the first day. It was gruelling we hiked 2000 meters up hill. Definitely take the gondola to the top and start from there. Took 4 hours out of a 16 hour day hike. It is a beautiful hike so don’t be discouraged by my comments. If your young and “FIT” do it.
