Tour du Mont Blanc and Beaufort Cheese

Travel - TMB La Ville Des Glaciers La Ville Des Glaciers is a sweet hamlet along the TMB that offers gorgeous views of both big scenery and close-up farm life.  This is the epicenter of Beaufort cheese, the luscious stuff produced right here.

I’ve heard that some of the residents will take you into the buildings and show you the small scale production here of this local delicacy, but we didn’t see any signs of human life on the day we came through.

It was September, after all, and something like 10,000 people had just traipsed through this region so I wonder if the locals had had enough.

No matter, we found the cheese available almost every day afterward and we enjoyed it to the fullest!  It made a fine pack-along for the trail as well as post-day hike/pre-dinner snack.

I know imported Beaufort cheese is available in the states, but really, how can it be the same?  I know how I feel after making that trip across the big pond – dang tired!  I think having this product here, right where it’s made, without any travel at all has got to be the best!
