Elevation change profile on the Tour des Dents Blanches (Starting point: Barme, Switzerland):
total positive elevation change: 4200m
total negative elevation change: 4200m
Length of the tour: We recommend either doing the tour in 3 days (fast tour) or in 5 days (large tour). More information about the 3 and 5 days tours on our package pages.
Sense of turn: It is advisable to go around clockwise in order to climb the the ladders of the pass of the Ottans (going up is easier than going down).
Note 2022: During the 2022 season, the Folly hut will remain exceptionally closed. The 2022 itinerary proposes to avoid the Folly hut by taking the itinerary linking directly the Vogealle lake to the Combe aux Puaires crossing ( –> Pas au Taureau) – Itinerary marked in blue on the interactive map above. This 2022 route is therefore shortened and is about 36.5 km long.
The yellow itinerary on the interactive map is a variant that is significantly longer but less alpine (it avoids the pas au Taureau).
The modification has been taken into account in the schematic representation below.

Update 2022 – Description of the direct stage Vogealle – Bostan
The Refuge du Folly is exceptionally closed during the summer season 2022. It is of course possible to follow the official itinerary (Vogealle-Folly, then Folly-Bostan) but this requires doubling a stage and considerably lengthens the walking time.
Estimated walking time: 9h30.
To follow this itinerary we let you consult the details of the stages further down on this page. In order to shorten this day, we propose an alternative itinerary allowing you to reach the Bostan refuge more quickly.
