Description

Join me in this 5-day trip to climb several 4000 meters peaks in Zermatt. The Swiss Mecca of mountaineering has many gems. Indeed, we can climb up to 9 different peaks! They are Zumsteinspitze (4563m), Signalkuppe (4554m), Ludwigshöhe (4341m), Parrotspitze (4432m), Schwarzhorn (4322m), Castor (4228m), Pollux (4092m), Vincentpyramide (4215m) and Breithorn (4159m). I’m sure you recognize some of there names!

The views over the valley are truly spectacular. This this is not only for “summit collectors”. In fact, it’s great for 4000 m newcomers!

For this fantastic tour you need to have experience walking with crampons. There are flanks up to about 40°.
