Wow what a beautiful hike! It was very foggy and rained a lot when I went but it was still an incredible sight! Raincoat and a good pair of hiking boots is a must. Very rocky, slippery and steep. Took us about 4.5 hours to finish the hike, starting from Bains Juanes. This hike was tough! I’m still feeling it days later but so worth it.

Once you find the trailhead sign, it’s very easy to stay on the trail. We only hiked up to the vista point (another wood sign about 500-600 feet vertically from base). Almost all switchbacks to get there and very high gradient hiking. It was wet from rain earlier in the day and we were able to make it up with our slipping. You can see the whole valley at the vista, very cool view. It rained on our way down, so we took our time as slipping on the way down was a concern. Very accessible and easy hike if you only go up to the vista, the whole loop looks much more difficult. Took about 25 minutes to get to vista from base. Not recommended for children or people not fit for very steep climb.

This trial was epic! It was one of the hardest trail runs ive done!
Turns out all the information you read on the GR20 is all slightly different in regards to distance & vertical climbing. anything from 169.8 (AllTrails) to hiking books 185Km.
I ran the GR20 over 5 days (54 hours total), with 2 good friends and my garmin said 195.6km & 13,800 m climbing. It lived up too and exceeded all our expectations and challenged us!

Highly recommend the trail, but be prepared for the extreme!

Nice hiking in the forest, and the cascade is truly beautiful

Nous n’avons pas fait la randonnée mais nous avons croisé le pont sur la route d124 au départ d’Ota vers Evisa, un peu avant la jonction avec la d84.

perfect views awesome

Really nice hike. I would recommend taking 12 days for relaxed hiking and one spare day. No need to pack a lot of food as there are many possibilities to buy food along the way. A lot of elevation sets this trail apart from other hikes in Europe (unsurprisingly, it's in the alps). It's exhausting but worth the effort. Beautiful alpine scenery, some snow and cozy refuges. Great hike!

As good as it gets. Amazing views everywhere you look. Would do again in a heartbeat.

The food, the views, the people and the culture made this trip one I would do every year if I could. I highly recommend doing it anti-clockwise, and if you have the gear, camp it instead of staying in refuges. Camping offers you more privacy, better sleep and a more flexible schedule. If you do camp, map out the official campgrounds to stay at, especially in Italy.

Amazing experience. I highly recommend it! I didn’t want to come home after completing the hike.

Awesome trail up. Not enough time to finish the loop. Will do it again leaving earlier.

pretty and enjoyable. nice views and the water at the bottom of the gorge is so tempting to jump in. if I go back I'd make sure I have swim shorts with me..

This was an amazing hike! The views every day were fabulous. Our Trek was an REI Adventure. We had two guides and a driver. Our support team took care of all the logistics so all we had to do was enjoy the hike. We hiked 8 to 10 miles a day. Elevation gain was in the 2500 to 3000 ft range each day with one 4000 ft day. The climbs were very steep at times so be sure to be in shape if you plan to try this trek! It is an adventure of a lifetime!

Nice hike, not to hard but its realy bussy on the trail!! lots of people.

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.

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

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!!

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.

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.

Amazing!

Best of the tracks!

A moderate hike through chestnut forests and featuring magnificent valley views. Much of it is along a centuries-old trail built by the Genovese in the 18th century. The hike into and out from the valley is steep but not too difficult.

the best I ever walked
