NotesAnother classic walk through the deep U-shaped valleys typical of the region, with an alpine section high above the treeline. Permits are difficult to come by however, often requiring planning many months in advance. With often alternating days of fine and not so fine weather, make the most of the good days, walking ahead along the track if the next day's forecast is bad.
