Length: 102.5 mi • Est. Multi-day
Le Tour du Mont Blanc (ou TMB) est l’un des sentiers les plus connus d'Europe. Cette randonnée de plus ou moins 170Km comporte plusieurs segments en France, en Italie et en Suisse. Cette marche de 11 jours autour du Mont-Blanc se fait dans le sens des aiguilles d'une montre. Il y a beaucoup de possibilités d'hébergement le long du sentier. Vous aurez l'occasion de raccourcir ou de prolonger vos journées de randonnée grâces à ces options d'hébergements. Les points de départ habituels sont Les Houches dans la vallée de Chamonix ou Les Contamines dans la vallée de Montjoie (en France), Courmayeur du côté italien et Champex ou un point proche de Martigny en Suisse. Les points culminants de toutes les variantes du sentier sont le Col des Fours en France et la Fenêtre d'Arpette en Suisse, tous deux situés à une altitude de 2665 m (8743 pieds). Bien que vous n'ayez probablement pas le mal d'altitude à ces altitudes, cet itinéraire sera difficile en raison des nombreuses montées. La météo peut changer rapidement et les randonneurs doivent être expérimentés, préparés et en bonne condition physique.

The entire GR20 takes around 12 days to walk. It begins in Calenzana in the north and ends in Conca in the south. It can be done both ways. It is well marked with red and white markers. The best time to go is from late May / early June to late October. July and August tend to see the most people on the trails. There are shelters along the way. You can pay to stay at a shelter, but you can also pay a fee to camp at a campsite if you brought a tent. Camping along the GR20 is prohibited except on a refuge site. If you are doing the entire hike, plan to stay at multiple huts during your trip. They also cook and sell food. The best place to stock up on supplies is Vizzanova; however, you can also buy them at Asco Stagnu, Castel di Vergio and Bavella. Make sure to bring a filter or drops as it's a long trail. No problems with the water supply have been reported, but do not hesitate to contact the residents of the shelters for more information.Show more
