Despite the sub-title, this guide describes a completely different high level route between Chamonix and Zermatt, some way to the north of the what most mountaineers would deem the Classic Haute Route, and avoiding all those nasty glaciers etc best known as the Walker's Haute Route.

Nevertheless this is a fine long distance walk taking in some of the most magnificent scenery in Europe. The route crosses 11 passes, gains more than 12,000 metres in height and is a strong contender for the title of Most Beautiful Walk in Europe. You will discover delightful villages and remote hamlets, wander flower meadows and forests, skirt exquisite tarns that turn mountains on their heads, and clamber beside glaciers. The way explores lonely stone-filled corries, with marmots along the boulders and ibex on the heights, and provides a surprise around every corner. This new edition now includes the exciting two-day Europaweg - a true high-level path that carries the Haute Route way above the Mattertal and into Zermatt - a worthy conclusion to a great trek. Expect to take a fortnight.

A well produced guide with lots of clear maps and good colour photos.
