Chamonix to Zermatt walkers route

A short video recorded during a trek in September 2010. The walkers haute route from Chamonix to Zermatt is an 180km trail taking between 12-14 days to complete. Trekking from valley to valley, each day involves crossing high passes, each unfolding a succession of panoramas of dramatic beauty. Rising to a maximum of 2965m, much of the landscape is of chaotic glacial high mountain wilderness, but the route presents no particular difficulties for the experienced hillwalker.
