Haute Route Thabor to Mont-Cenis
A new and genuine haute-route, offering long runs, technically easy and passing 3000m tops. This trip is a good excuse to leave the civilisation behind and wander across the snow covered mountains.
A wild and unusual route.
During five days in the wilderness, linking the lakes of Bissorte and Mont-Cenis, this haiute route will take you from the Cerces to the Haute-Maurienne, via the Thabor massive.
The route is offering many possibilities to climb and ski 3000m tops and a great variation of landscapes.
Nothing is too difficult or technical along the way, and this trip is perfe tfor a first experience of hut to hut touring.
HIghest point 3180 m.
The Mont Thabor is well known for the shrine built on the top. HIghest chapel in France, it's been built when the summit was belonging to Italy.
More that a pilgrimage place, the Thabor is also a great point of view over the southern Alps and an awesome mountain to ski!
