The hiking days are very different and full of surprises: Paths carved into the rock face, steep ascents through scree, climbing up in the gravel, descending on four or five successive vertical ladders, many small mountain lakes, hiking among aconites and edelweiss, panoramic views of the glaciers of Plaine Morte, Diablerets, Mont-Blanc, Grand Combin and the peaks around the Val d'Hérens, crossing a labyrinth of white rocks, many waterfalls tumbling over the steep rock faces.
