The Mönch is a mountain in the Bernese Alps, in Switzerland. Together with the Eiger and the Jungfrau it forms a highly recognisable group of mountains visible from far away.The Mönch lies on the border between the cantons of Valais and Bern, and forms part of a mountain ridge between the Jungfrau and Jungfraujoch to the west, and the Eiger to the east. The mountain is located west of Mönchsjoch and Mönchsjoch Hut and north of the Jungfraufirn and Ewigschneefäld, two affluents of the Great Aletsch Glacier. The north side of the Mönch forms a step wall above the Lauterbrunnen valley.The Jungfrau railway tunnel runs right under the summit at a height of approximately 3,300 metres.The peak was first climbed on August 15, 1857 by Christian Almer, Christian Kaufmann, Ulrich Kaufmann and Sigismund Porges.

  • The views spectacular. Climbing it by train is expensive... but I would repeat without hesitation! What if... is that we are left wanting to do night in the shelter of the Mönch.

  • The Monch. He is li, majestic, to admire and photograph several times once at the top of the Jungfrau. Especially from the terrace of the Sphinx.

  • It could admire from the mount Schilthorn, always covered in snow. It is important to make this kind of trips when it is not cloudy or raining, to appreciate it as well.
