  • Discover a wonderful place for mountaineering

  • Explore all the beauty that surrounds Monte Rosa

 

Join me on one of the most beautiful journeys in Europe, ascending the Monte Rosa peak. Follow me on this 4-day ascent, and reach the top of this magnificent place!

Monte Rosa (4563m) is a mountain massif that lies in the eastern side of the Pennine Alps. Located right at the border of Switzerland, in the Valais region, and Italy at the Piedmont and Aosta Valley, this majestic massif stands out for its beauty. It also stands out for its height, as it is the second highest mountain in the whole Alps, and in the western region in Europe.

The main summit of this colossal massif is Dufourspitze, standing at 4,634 meters. But, there are several other equally impressive peaks in this massif, such as the Dunantspitze, Grenzgipfel, Nordend, Signalkuppe and Zumsteinspitze. However, it will be the Monte Rosa mountain, the tallest mountain in Switzerland and in the Pennine Alps, our main objective.

Our goal will be to stand at the top of this wonderful mountain. And to do so, we’ll spend 4 days making our way to its summit and exploring around. Once we reach its top, the incomparable views we’ll get, will make it completely worth it!

Moreover, during our journey, we’ll encounter many other amazing spots. For instance, this area is famous for the dazzling glaciers all throughout it. The Gorner Glacier is one of the most famous ones and it merges with the Border Glacier.

This area is a mecca for mountaineering. As it is brimming with breathtaking sceneries and many peaks we can explore. So if you want to explore one of the best places for this wonderful activity, this trip is for you.

If you want to join this trip, send me a request. I promise it will be an unforgettable experience.

I also guide this Selvaggio Blu hike in Sardinia, 8 days.

I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.
