TMB - Day 7 From La Fouly to Champex-Lac, Switzerland. Today is a day for soaking up the pure pleasures of being in the truly great outdoors as we proceed at a leisurely pace, trekking through forests, fields of wildflowers and quaint Swiss villages. We were treated by our guides to a very special picnic lunch in a story-book setting a beautiful meadow and creek. After lunch our hiking gets steeper as we climb through woodlands to the lovely alpine town of Champex (4808'), offering a perfect resting spot for the night - a small resort beside a pretty blue lake with several restaurant choices for dinner. The trail was decorated with many different carved wooden sculptures of the indigenous animals and mushrooms. As we were arriving in Champex-Lac we saw a number of very nice homes and were impressed with the craftsmanship and quality of construction. This was a consistent theme in all of the villages that we walked through along the TMB. The Hotel Splendid is really an amazing property with the grand Terrace that overlooks the valley and the Grand Combin. This is a property that you would expect to see in a WWW II movie. We had a nice walk along lake Champex to our dinner place. I was able to take some very nice pictures with the reflections off the lake. Hiking: 8.5 miles; Elevation gain: 1,414'; Elevation loss: 1,765'. Terrain: Wide pasture roads; one steep section. Hotel Splendide Famille Richer-Lonfat Champex-Lac, Switzerland Tel.
