Greetings from the PO valley
Created On: Aug 7, 2007

There are some valleys, in the Western Alps, especially in the Cozie Alps (Occitania) that look like made for a relaxing hiking, their sweet slopes, run by comfortable paths, call hundreds of people to enjoy one or more days walking around ...
One of them is the PO valley, mostly known for 2 reasons :
- here has its rise the longest and main river of Italy : the PO
- here rises a mountain that can be seen from hundreds of miles all around : the Monviso
Why don't make a wandering trip there ?
Here roads are good, hosting is good, food is VERY good ...

Re: Nice Album


I have been there in my early mountaineering times (1979) and Monte Viso was for a long time my highest mountain. I had fantastic weather without the usual noon fog. You can find some photos incl panos of this tour attached to the Monte Viso page. There was a nice detail with this tour: I had forgotten all my drinking stuff at Sella hut, so I went through right to the summit without drinking or any break and arrived there very exhausted. I was rescued by a very friendly Italian who - after looking into my face - handed me over without any comment an apple ...

BTW - I suggest that you add the link to the Monte-Viso-page to your text.

Re: Nice Album

I've given a look to your photos ... we were not so lucky as modern climbers and hikers that can carry a small, light automatic digital camera ... I used to take photos only on the easy and short routes, on the long ones I thought better having 1 more lt of water than the camera :)
but we amused anyway :)
