Description

Many cultures around the world worship mountains, and when you ascend a mountain like Jungfrau (4.158 m), you understand why. Come with me on this 2-day ascent to the top of Jungfrau. From its summit you will feel like you have been blessed by its beauty.

Jungfrau means virgin or maiden in German, and it is easy to understand why it has that name: it is covered in a pristine layer of snow that resembles a veil. The peak stands over Grindelwald, and next to Eiger (3.970 m.) and Mönch (4.107 m.).

Allow me to take you on this 2-day trip to show you some of Jungfrau’s most dazzling spots. Your journey will begin in GrindelwaldWe’ll take the Jungfrau train to the Jungfraujoch. The famous railroad built more than 100 years ago. From Jungfraujoch, we have just a short walk to the Mönchjoch hut where we’ll spend the night. 

As I planned our trip, you will reach Jungfrau’s summit early in the morning. This means that as you reach its top, you will get to see the sunrise and admire everything it unveils. From the summit, you will have an incomparable view of the other two famous peaks in the Jungfrau’s massif, Eiger and Mönch.

Once we complete our ascent, you will see why Jungfrau is one of the favorite climbs in the Swiss Alps.

So if you are interested in this magical journey, please send me a request. I will be more than glad to guide you to the top of Jungfrau. You can also check  my 2-day Mönch ascent, another classic climb in the Swiss Alps!

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in Kranj, Slovenia. I am a biology teacher and I also have been a professional alpinist for more than 30 years. Until now, I’ve reached 4 eight-thousanders around the world: Broad Peak, Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri and Mount Everest.

In fact, I am the first (and still only) Slovenian female reaching ‘the roof of the world’. Together with my husband Andrej, we entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the first married couple to stand on Mt Everest.

Beyond the Himalayas, I climbed in Alaska, South America and Japan, among other places.

Sport climbing as well as competition and rock climbing have a very important place in my life and have taken me to many incredible and challenging places around the world.
