Remointse du Tsaté Walk, Val d’Hérens, Switzerland

For the past few days I’ve been itching to do this walk, but the clouds have been clinging steadfastly to the mountain tops. With clear blue skies forecast yesterday, at least initially, I set off to drive the short distance to La Forclaz (VS).

My aim was to reach the small lake or pond at the area called Remointse du Tsaté (@2,502m or 8,209ft). I had no idea how much snow there would be and, in the event, my route to the lake was clear, but the lake was almost surrounded, as you will see below.

I was quite lucky because the sun had all but gone in when I arrived at the lake, though the distant mountains were still as bright as ever. I took a few photos and then, miraculously, the sun came out, so I took them all over again! It was an amazing sight for sure and one which I had all to myself. 😀

    • Thanks for your kind comments. I occasionally get comments on specific photos and it is interesting to see what people like best. The reflection photos didn’t really do justice to the scene in front of me. I took a load of photos and then the sun came out so I took a load more. But not captured the beauty of it. So it’s interesting that you chose the waterfall, cross/rooves and unusual looking flower. (I still don’t know what that is btw). We also have a lot of butterflies around here, thanks to the huge abundance of alpine flowers.
