[ actually this loop is not in Switzerland, rather all in France + Italy,  ]

[ warning: A long section of this loop is off-road, on a very steep + strenuous unpaved hiking trail ]

Dent du Geant (4014m) and les Grandes Jorasses (4206m) seen northwest
on the climb from Pre St Didier up to la Thuile in Italy (on the way to Petit St Bernard)
 

after crossing Col du Petit St Bernard / Piccolo San Bernardo (2188m) into France,
looking southwest to Mont Pourri (3779m) on the descent to city of Bourg St Maurice
 

Aiguille des Glaciers (3816m) seen from the paved road up from les Chapieux
