Himalayan Alps

Despite the mixed weather recently we were able to have a wonderful walk on Monday up the Grand Chavalard with some friends. Despite the cloud swirling around we still got some amazing views down onto the Rhone valley, a vertical drop of about 2400m. It brought back memories of a walk we did in the Langtang in Nepal a couple of years ago (left Switzerland, right Nepal). It's not the first time that we have been reminded of the Himalayas since being here - different cows though...

On a clear day you would have an amazing 360 which takes in Mt Blanc, the Bernese Oberland and the Matterhorn - something to come back for.

Always a good idea to keep on the right side of those Himalayan Yaks ie: the uphill side of steep sided mountain track!
HGreat shots as always Dave
