The last day of the Tour du Mont Blanc does not disappoint as you follow the Grand Balcon du Sud to Le Flégère, and then continue on a balcony path through woodland and scree with the Mont Blanc massif never out of sight for long. Ascend to the Col du Brévent and then continue to ascend to Le Brévent at 2,525m, one of the best places for views of the Mont Blanc summit.
Your last day on the Tour du Mont Blanc takes you all the way to Les Houches via the Col du Brévent & the rocky pedestal of the le Brévent (2525m). Mont Blanc seems within touching distance on the opposite side of the valley. Descend past Lac Brévent and traverse onwards to Bel Lachat before making the descent to Les Houches and a short bus or ride will take you back to Chamonix. This day can be shortened at several points including Le Flégère, Plan Praz and Brévent.
It is a long day if you do descend all the way to Les Houches so you might want to consider taking one of the cable cars to reduce the descent.
Weather conditions can change quickly in the mountains - always be prepared and carry appropriate clothing; warm as well as waterproof layers, hat and gloves etc. Please see your information pack for a detailed packing list.
