Col du Grand Saint BernardThe trip in Haute Savoy, or circle around Mont Blanc

June 2006. Pentecost vacation and rock slide at Saint Gotthard pass.

Reasons enough to start a trip around the Mont Blanc. During this trip we have met Corinne, landlady of the famous hostel Rarnerhof. Enjoy the report.

Willi, the landlord of the mountain guesthouse Berggasthaus Beverin sometimes leaves his residence at 1,884m/6,181ft altitude above sea-level to show his guests the most beautiful places in Switzerland. On this trip however, we have seen some small surprises.

The motorbike tour leads us to the village Saint Antoenien, across the Fluela pass, Maloja pass into the Grotta cave of Ghiggi and then down to the Italian town Chiavenna and the Spluegen pass back to is the report!
