Join me for an exciting mountain week in the Italian Alps, discovering the beauty of Monte Rosa massif. In this climbing trip, we’ll ascend different 4000-meter peaks, like Breithorn and Punta Giordani.

Monte Rosa is a mountain massif in the Pennine Alps, laying on the border between Switzerland and Italy. In fact, it is the second highest mountain in the entire Alps, with its main peak (Dufourspitze) at 4642 m.

However, this massif has many 4000-m and 3000-m peaks which are technically simple to climb.

During this 6-day trip, we’ll try to find the perfect balance between climbing in the heights and traversing through green valleys. From the top of some of Monte Rosa’s peaks, we’ll see large glacier plateaus and wonderful panoramic views.

Besides, we are spending the night in pleasant mountain huts.

For further details, you can find the complete itinerary below this description.
