Description

Join me for a 5-day climbing trip in Val d’Anniviers, one of the most beautiful valleys in the Valais. We’ll reach the summit of Mount Bishorn at 4135 m and enjoy some great views!

Mount Bishorn is known as one of the easiest peaks to climb in the Alps. However, it is part of a group of impressive mountains above 4000 meters: the Imperial Crown. Weisshorn, Matterhorn, Dent Blanche and Obergabelhorn are some of the peaks you can see from its summit.

This 5-day program combines climbing in different terrains like rock, ice and snow, seeing local flora and fauna, and enjoying beautiful landscapes. Besides, climbs are technically simple and don’t require previous experience.

For further details about this trip, you can find a complete itinerary below this description.
