You probably know that the highest hut in Europe is Margherita Hut. And it will be the main objective of this fantastic 3-day climbing trip in the mountains!
At 4559 m, this mythical hut offers unbelievable views ranging from the Maritime Alps to the Bernen Oberland, from the 4000 Swiss peaks up to the Central Alps. Spending the night at the highest hut in Europe gives you the possibility to admire the sunset and sunrise from one of the most panoramic points of the Alps.
During this program it will be possible to reach the summits of Punta Zumstein, Punta Parrot, Ludwigshoe, Swarzhorn, Balmenhorn and Punta Vincent. Therefore, we will climb up to 6 peaks over 4000m!
The ascent to the hut does not have particular technical difficulties. In fact, it takes place through great glaciers (sometimes large crevasses are present) on gentle slopes. The steepest part (35°) is just on the last step before the summit. In addition, the ascents to the other peaks involve overcoming slopes up to 45° on snow and ice. Plus there are short sections on the ridge.
Did you find this program tempting? Then please contact me for more information, I will be waiting for your message! And I also offer an option if you want to ski in the area during the spring, check it out!
