The picturesque village of Champex, set around the beautiful turquoise-hued lake of the same name, is the starting point of this great day hike. Champex is located in the canton of Valais, at an altitude of 1500m, in a tranquil high valley in southwestern Switzerland.

This is wonderful plan for good hikers!  From Champex, I will guide you to the Cabane d’Orny (2831m), through the beautiful Val d’Arpette, a pristine valley with an ancient forest and flower-filled meadows. You can bring your own picnic and enjoy it surrounded by amazing scenery.

The Cabane d’Orny offers great views of the Orny glacier and surrounding mountains. On our way down, we will descend and return by the wild Combe d’Orny. We will spend an unforgettable day, discovering wonderful views.
