Description

Join me for this 2-day ascent to one of the most accessible and beautiful peaks in the Alps: the Bishorn. From its altitude of 4,153 m, you will have amazing views of the majestic Alps.

Since the route up to the Bishorn is not complex or technical, this tour is great for first-time mountaineers. I like to say this is an ideal first ascent for anyone thinking about starting out in mountaineering.

On the first day, I will meet you at Zinal. Once there, I will guide you on a trek towards the Tracuit hut (3,256 m), to spend the night. On the way there, we will ascent 1,500 m up a series of easy climbing steps.

Next, day 2 will be summit day. I will lead the group on the 900 m ascent to the Bishorn summit (4,135 m). The perspective from this point is impressive, with views of peaks such as Weisshorn, Obergabelhorn and Zinalrothorn. Later, we will descent across the plain: 2,400 m downhill, taking strategic breaks.

So, ready for this 2-day Bishorn ascent? Contact me for details and any questions you might have. Also, have a look at my other programms available, like the Avalanche ski touring course, for experienced skiers.
