Hi All,

I ave a very limited time windows (4days+-1 day) to trek so I decided I should trek somewhere close to the airport (Geneva). The dents du midi seems to perfectly suit my limitations. However, I discover that there are more treks in the area that I can do (Such as Tour des Mouverans or tour de Mont Ruan). As I can hike only one, which would you recommended me? What is favorite? If you have another trek which I didn't mention but you think is nicer, I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks!
Annika

Hi bloodymeli, and welcome to MySwissAlps! I don't have personal experiences with the hikes you describe. The Tour des Muverans is well described in this forum topic though. You could contact some of the members there to see if they can be of further assistance. Morever, I suggest you take a look at the Wanderland website too, which does an excellent job in describing multiple day hikes. And did you check this website on the Dents du Midi tour? I hope this gets you started!

I like the fact that your pictures show how beautiful the mountains are, even if it's cloudy. Perhaps it's even more beautiful than a 100% clear sky.

I'm hoping for more settled weather this week on the Dents du Midi, the forecast is slightly better but I'm sure they'll be more cloud!

Beuatiful pictures indeed. Please keep uploading!
How's the flowers blossom? It seems I'll be heading to one of these treks in September / October. Will there still be bloom?

Some shots from the Tour des Muverans this week. That brings my (work) tally for the last three weeks to 205km of walking with 15,000m of climbing.
