Description

Of all the 3000 metre peaks that I offer trips for, Mont Velan (3,727m) is the biggest. This impressive peak in the canton of Valais in the Pennine Alps rests on the border between Switzerland and Italy, and is between the Great St. Bernard Pass and Grand Combin. There are also several glaciers covering this mountain, including the Glacier de Tseudet, the Glacier de Valsaroy and the Glacier de Proz.

Mont Velan is a beautiful mountain surrounded by beautiful mountains. It is also a mountain that is fairly easy to climb. Thus making this trip an accessible adventure that even beginners can participate in.

This trip is spread out over 2 days. On the first day we will depart from Ollomont or Valpelline. From there we will spend 2 to 3 hours walking to the bivouac of Savoie. The second day will be spent making our ascent of Mont Velan. It will be a mixed climb, as you will be scaling rock and glacier, until you reach the summit. Once there, you will get to enjoy some unforgettable views before descending. The ascent and descent should take approximately 8 to 10 hours.

The itinerary of this trip might appear fairly straightforward. However, I can assure you the trip is anything but. You will get to see beautiful scenery that can only be seen in the Alps. And you will get to feel the thrill of scaling one of its most spectacular peaks to its summit. So if this is the kind of trip you are looking for, just send me a message, and lets get started.

If you are looking for another 2 day climb in the Pennine Alps, I also offer this ascent of Mont Gele.
