The hike to the Cabane de Moiry is a relatively easy way to get a taste of the high mountains. The trail starts at an elevation of 2,350 metres and climbs to 2,825 metres. Better still, in summer there's a direct bus from Zinal via Grimentz to the parking at the glacier lake. Unfortunately it is not possible to hike much further than the hut. When I did the hike in 2015 the glacier and the mountains were shrouded in clouds. I waited for about an hour for the fog to clear but in the end I decided to descend again. This time I had more luck with the weather.
