Start at Saint Luc in the Val d’Anniviers. We take the train to Tignousa where our journey really begins.
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.
Both peaks are known for their splendid panoramic view of the Rothorn and we have an impressive depth view of the Rhone valley. Descent is made along the same road to subsequently take up residence in the Bella Tola hut (2346 m). (+ 850 m / -680 m)
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)
We rise to the Schöllijoch (3583 m, 3610 m). After the descent we take back our move into the Turtmannhütte. (+ 1100 m / -1100 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.
After a long climb we reach the Col de Tracuit and the new eponymous hut (3256 m). (+ 850 m) / – 150 m)
It is our today another great day, now with a 4000’s on the menu.
A gently traverse brings us to a steady upward glacier us at the top of the Bishorn (4135 m) .
After the descent we can refuel in the hut before starting the descent to Zinal. A short transfer ensures that we get back to our starting point. (+ 900 / -2500 m)
Pleasant mountain huts.
-No previous experience required. Good physical condition.
-There are two physically heavier days on day 2 and 5.
-I recommend taking Swiss money for to pay for huts, funicular and transfer.
