I know I’ve blogged about this walk before, (3 times in fact), but it’s such a great walk that when visitors arrive, it just has to be done, especially when the sun is shining and the sky is blue.
Thyon is about a 40 minute drive from our chalet. After a short, but sharp, climb, the ridge is clearly laid out in front of you and you can decide how far you’d like to go before turning back, via Les Gouilles (the ponds). The ridge itself gets progressively more challenging as you go, with the odd scramble here and there to attain each successive, and higher, peak. All the way along there are 360 degree views, with iconic landmarks, like the Jungfrau, the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc, visible – as you can see from the pictures below.
With thanks to my daughter, Sarah, and her boyfriend, Karl, for being ‘super’ models !
