Description

Join us on a spectacular 2-day journey to climb Kingspitz, one of the most striking mountains in the Engelhoerner mountain range in Switzerland! You’ll hike through the scenic Rosenlaui valley, and also traverse sharp, spectacular limestone walls. 

The Engelhörner range is popular among climbers as it offers innumerable climbing routes on its needle-like limestone peaks. The tour takes you via the elegant North Face of Kingspitz. It is a challenging climb where you will tackle finely structured lime slabs.

We will begin by arriving at the Meiringen train station. From Meiringen, we will drive towards Rosenlaui and finally reach Rychenbachalp. Then, from there, we will begin our journey on foot! A hike of about 1 hour from Rychenbachalp will take us to the beautiful Engelhorn Hut.

The next day, after a hearty breakfast, we’ll attempt the Kingspitze. A good hike will take us to Ochsetal – a beautiful valley surrounded by towering slopes. We’ll go up for about an hour towards the North Face of Kingspitz. We’ll climb for about 5-7 hours to reach the summit where the magnificent views of the Rosenlaui Glacier and the surrounding peaks of Wellhorn and Wetterhorn will welcome us. 

Finally, the descent will be as thrilling as the hike up! It will take us about 2-3 hours to head back to Engelhorn hut from where we’ll further descend to the car, marking an end to this thrilling trip!

So, don’t miss this incredible opportunity to climb the North Face of Kingspitz in Switzerland. Book your place now and start planning your adventure!
