Les KM de Chando


September 22


The KM De Chando is a vertical kilometer mostly on hiking trails and is a unique double VK in Switzerland with 2,000m vertical gain. From the starting point, the track is very sinuous until Chandolin. Then, the rise to the Illhorn summit becomes very steep, running along the ski lift path. The finish line is at the top of the Illhorn, 2,700m, with a magnificent view of the whole Rhone Valley, the Val d’Anniviers and four 4,000m summits.
