Description

What makes the spectacular backdrop so special is the fact that it includes no fewer than thirteen peaks higher than 4000 m – at least according to the orientation panels along the trail. And these thirteen include the highest of them all, namely the Dom, which is 4545 m high, and Mont Blanc, which at 4807 m high is the highest mountain in the Alps. This winter hike starts at Les Rousses middle station and takes you in a huge arc back down to Anzère. And you will pass an inviting wayside restaurant as well! The Tsalan’s spacious terrace is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the sunshine and the self-service buffet is anything but average. Bon appétit.

Hints

Les Rousses - Tsalan - Anzère

The tour begins at Les Rousses middle station and follows a trail back down towards Anzère with some great views to be had en route. It takes just over 30 minutes to reach the panoramic Tsalan restaurant and from there, the trail leads back down to Anzère via Anzère Grillesse.
