The sunny, south-west facing little village of Morgins is a popular holiday destination for hikers in summer, while in winter it is part of the mega-sized cross-border skiing area of the "Portes du Soleil". This walking area in the Chablais region offers magnificent scenery with the towering Dents-du-Midi, alpine meadows and countless mountain lakes.
The Valais resort of Morgins is located at about 1300 m in the valley of the same name, a side valley of the Val d'Illiez in Lower Valais, directly on the border with France. The road leads from Monthey in the Rhone valley through the Val d'Illiez to Troistorrents and from there in countless tight bends up to the upland valley of Morgins (15 km from Monthey). The border pass of Pas de Morgins, a short ridge with a pretty mountain lake, leads into the Val d'Abondance in France.
