Long Distance Walks in the Gran Paradiso (A cicerone guide)

£8.99

Product description

The Gran Paradiso is well known to continental walkers, but it is unusual to encounter any British walkers there. This guide has been written to show what is possible. An in-depth introduction describes many facets of the Valdotain hill country and deals with the differences likely to be found between walking in the UK and the Alps. The Via Alta 2 is a walk within the reach of any strong walker, covering 88 miles and 9000m of ascent, passing from valley to valley over high cols. The Via Alta 4 is more demanding undertaking over 106 miles with 9000m of ascent. Like the Via Alta 2, this passes from valley to valley but more into the heart of the mountains and close to the glaciers. The Traverse of the Gran Paradiso is described, though only the western portion of the route is given, which is also within the abilities of any strong walker. It passes through some very wild country, with little accommodation so that the walker has to be self contained. Finally, some shorter outings are described.

In very good used condition.
