HOW TO GET READY BEFORE HIKING TO ROBERT BLANC?

We provide you a few recommandations to prepare your hiking in the vallée des Glaciers.

  1. Let your friends or relatives know where you are hiking, your route,
  2. Save on your phone the rescue services telephon numbers : 112 and PGHM de Bourg Saint-Maurice +33.479.07.01.10.
  3. Get enough food and water,
  4. Take the IGN 3531ET Saint-Gervais map,
  5. Check the weather forecast,
  6. Don’t forget to take sunglasses and sunscreen,
  7. Make sure you have a small first-aid kit,
  8. Start walking early in the morning. It is much more pleasant to walk with a cool air than in the scorching afternoon heat. Furthermore the strom risk often increases in the afternoon,
  9. Please load and check your electric devices before coming. Depending on the weather, we might can’t reload them if we have a low power. Turn you phones off during your hike, because the cell phone network is very poor in this part of the mountain. Your phone will uselessly loose battery trying desperately to find service.
