Overview

360° view from the summit of Mont Meabe'

Mont Meabe' is situated between the Valtournenche and the St. Barthelemy Valley, in the same chain of Cima Longhede-Becca d'Aver, north side, closer to the Cervino.

It'a a very easy walk up, the summit is not too high, but the exposition of the path (south), makes it hiking very early, as there is no more snow when others paths are still covered.

The view from the top is magnificient; the whole Monte Rosa Group, the Cervino, all the summits of the Valtournenche, Saint Barthélemy Valley, and the most important of the central Aosta Valley.
