    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.

    Are you spending some days in the Alps? So come with me for this amazing week of adventures in the mountains! I will be happy to be your guide.

      Today we put an double top on the program. First, we climb along the Bella Tola mountain lake to the col. From there, the Rothorn (2998m) and the Bella Tola (3025m) within reach.

      From the Bella Tola hut we step over the Lac de l’Armina to Meidpas.

      From now on, we have to do everything in German. We descend into the pretty “Meidtälli” through Meidsee to the reservoir on the Turtmannrivier. From here we have a climb that brings us to the same hut (2519 m). (+ 1150 m / -900 m)

      Today we are faced with a completely new surface. No snow or rocks more. After a short climb we set foot on the Brunegg Gletsjer. The crampons will do good service here. We walk among Stierenberg by and Turtmanngletsjer.

    What People are Saying about Namaste Mountain Guides

     

    Professional guide who carefully assessed our climbing and fitness abilities to get to the top unfortunately we came down a bit too fast and I fell and broke my big toe and was unable to attempt the Mont Blanc climb which was very disappointing because I felt ready to try. We felt challenged but relatively safe all of the time, the fall was an unfortunate mistake. Jan offered us additional training between the climbs to improve our chances on Mont Blanc which we really appreciated but were unable to take advantage of. We would climb with him again.

    My first experience with alpinism but 100% worth it. Because of bad weather we couldn’t ascend the Mont Blanc but the backup program saved the trip. Learned a lot and seen mighty things. Overall, enjoyed a lot, a week we will never forget.

    We had a marvellous week, it matched our expectations and we had souvenirs which will never fade away. The flexibility from our program because of the bad weather, was great, each time we had a discussion about what we could do and couldn’t. Reaching the top was always the goal. Also the fact I did this with my daughter gave it an extra dimension. We enjoyed every step because we were in good shape. Everybody insisted on this, but at the end, it turned out to be an advantage.

    I had a very good time and it has been a fantastic week to fulfill my dream of Mont Blanc, with extra reward of the experience of climbing Gran Paradiso, both mountains are amazing and we are blessed by very good weather. And thanks to Jan and my guide, they are always there to encourage me during the hardest moment, without them I can\'t do this.
