The tour begins in Zermatt (Switzerland). Then, Klein Matterhorn cable car takes us up to 3883 m. This is the starting point of the traverse.
The first day will have fantastic views of Cervino from the summit of Breithorn, the first 4000 m peak of this trip.
Then, we’ll travel from Klein Matterhorn over Breithorn to Mezzalama Hut, a cosy hut at the foot of Pollux mountain where we spend the night.
We trek from Mezzalama hut over Pollux and Castor to Sella hut. This is a beautiful hut in the border of inmense glaciars.
From Sella hut over the Il Naso di Lysskam to Gnifetti Hut.
Gnifetti is a large hut with excellent service team in the middle of the glaciers.
From Gnifetti hut over many 4000m peaks to Margherita hut. This is the highest hut in Europe on the Punta Gnifetti at 4550m.
Incredible view of one of the highest peaks in the Alps.
Long hike down from Margherita hut over Grenzglacier and Monte Rosa hut to Zermatt, a village in the foot of famous Monte Cervino – Matterhorn.
The huts are open during the summer from the end of June till mid of September. Some of the huts are crowded especially on weekends. I recommend to reserve in advance.
