The Col des Montets is relatively easy: it is only seven kilometres long with 500 metres of climbing. It’s situated in France but is still part of the Trient Valley.
Between Le Châtelard on the French-Swiss border and the Col des Montets, the road does not present any significant difficulties. The slope is never too steep and the road surface is in excellent condition. You will cross the village of Vallorcine and its rustic nature. At the summit, the route continues in the direction of Argentière and Chamonix.
As a reward at the top of the pass, take the time to admire the beautiful panorama that awaits you.
