Description

On this expedition, you will get to enjoy an extensive experience on the beautiful Monte Rosa massif. You will get to climb to the summits of several wonderful peaks. Those peaks include Breithorn (4,164m), Castor (4,228m), Vincent Pyrmaid (4,215m) and the Punta Gniffeti (4,554m). Each one of these summits offers its own unique set of glorious panoramic views of the Alps. Furthermore, you will also get to climb to the top of the Balmenhorn point (4,167m), where there is the stunning 4 meter high Christ of Summits statue.

Another wonderful aspect of this trip is that you will get to spend the nights in different mountain refuges. They include the Quintino Sella refuge (3,585m), the Guide Ayas refuge (3,420m), and either the Mantova refuge (3,498m) or the Gnifetti hut (3,611m). Also, depending on weather conditions and availability, you may also get to spend a night in the famous Margherita hut, at the summit of the Punta Gnifetti.

While this trip is not solely reserved for experts, participants should have some prior mountaineering experience. You should also be in good physical condition as well.

With such a long list of amazing peaks and refuges, I have no doubt, on this 5 day trip, you will have the time of your life. So send me a request, and let me show you the glory of Monte Rosa.
