Rope bridge is fun and the island is beautiful. A lot of tourists - go early.

Amazing but necessary to be prepared for any weather.

really good day out with a pal

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.

Excellent path. Some steeper sections on the way up, easy walking coming back down. completely clouded over as we approached the top so can't say much on views but still very dramatic and enjoyable!

Great hike, long but not too strenuous. Worth getting up early to do this one for less crowds.
Route is easy to navigate with all trails map. No toilets on route only at campsite at the start. Just a shame couldn’t see anything when we got to the top

Our hike was Wednesday 9/15/18. It was difficult for me but only because I was out of shape from resting a plantar fascia injury several weeks and recovering from a cold 2 days prior to hike. Preikestolen, Trollkirchen and Trolltunga were all more difficult. Also I wore athletic shoes as I didn’t bring my hiking boots and my feet were wet, cold and miserable. We didn’t make the whole loop but did in and out for total of 8.7 miles. Had I been better conditioned we could have done the loop. For reference I am 61yo and my husband is 54 but we both are in great condition and with exception of my recent downtime we work out regular and run.

As to the hike it was absolutely stunning! If you are a fan of water, rock, and flora this is a great hike. Tunnels through the rock feel like caves ( watch your head and hang on to rails, rock/wood wet and slick) waterfalls, forest, wooden bridges, rock trails (ankle support recommended) , everything for the explorers heart! I’ve posted pictures for your pleasure .

There were families on this trail, baby’s carried, small children, and dogs. There are places to get refreshments, we didn’t partake but it smelled wonderful! Pretty sure I smelled Kaiserschmarrn!
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiserschmarrn Bathrooms are 50c at gorge entrance and the fee for entering Gorge was €5. Each. There may be discounts or free for children, not sure since it didn’t apply to us. http://www.hoellentalklamm-info.de/ can provide more information.

Great track; phenomenal views! Would love to do it again, but alas, heading home.

A great hike but difficult in the snow. I have climbed Nevis twice in April and on both occasions the snow was deep and treacherous from about half way up. The views are beautiful on the way up but zero visibility at the top when I was there. Be prepared to experience all weather conditions in one day.

A great experience!! A challenging climb for me as a I’m nit the fittest but it was gray fun.

Oak wood has a subtropical feel about the place,cloudy when we visited so we will be going back when the weather is clearer. £5 all day parking, loos available in the car park and tea room is open until 5. Bit of a scramble to the top and we went down the hill side to Llyn Cau which proved to bit quite slippy! Beautiful place can’t wait to return.

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!

Pouring rain high winds. Loved it.

awesome challenging walk note tough for dogs

Amazing experience and feeling to complete the highest peak in the Uk.
Weather went a bit mad which made it more difficult but would highly recommend

great hike I love this mountain beautiful is summer and winter but in the winter you need to follow you bearings as that snow under your feet may not have a mountain under it

Amazing hike. Start at Pen-Y-Pass and follow the path on the right up the Pyg track. At the fork bear left (unless you want to go up Crib Goch- not for the feint-hearted!). The surface is uneven, and a good pair of walking boots is a must. The last zig-zag up to the summit is by far the hardest. Coming back, you follow the Pyg track until it veers downwards towards the visible miners track below. Although the Miners route is the easiest, it is also a long track that seems to never end. My advise is, push yourself and go all the way back via the Pyg track. It may be more difficult, but at least it keeps you engaged! Nonetheless, a wonderful walk. Highly recommended.

Great trail. Coming down as you do the trail clockwise can be a bit tricky as the trail is quite rundown.

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!!

my first hike for nearly over 10years, had an amazing day the view wernt the best because of low clouds but what a climb, very rocky at the start but the path gets easier as you go, just keep thinking your nearly there and you'll do it, that's my motto and I conquered it of to snowdan next week then the big Ben Nevis after then hitting irish peaks, I can say the pike got me attached.

Simple route which at the summit provides excellent views. Very stony so decent hiking boots are a must!

Took this route going up to the summit of Snowdon on Monday 2nd July. Views were amazing to see in all directions.

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.
