Allalinhorn, Swiss Alps
(5/5 based on 10+ reviews on the web)
The Allalinhorn is a mountain in the Pennine Alps in Switzerland. It lies between Zermatt and Saas-Fee in the canton of Valais, and is part of the Mischabel range, which culminates at the Dom .It was first climbed by London barrister Edward Levi Ames, the clergyman Johann Joseph Imseng, another member of the Imseng family and Johann's manservant Franz-Josef Andenmatten on 28 August 1856.The building of the Metro Alpin funicular to the Mittelallalin just below the north-east face has turned the mountain into one of the easiest and popular 4000-metre peaks of the Alps, when climbed by the standard route . On the normal route, climbers can ride up to the Mittelallalin; from there, there are only about 500 vertical metres to tackle. However, even the 'easiest' route still has objective dangers from crevasses and should not be attempted by inexperienced mountaineers without a mountain guide or adequate crevasse rescue training.

  • We were lucky that the weather was great. 2 climbs by cable car and the balance with the Alpine cable car. At the top the view is beautiful, our table follows the landscape at the edge of the canopy. For lunch the valaisan plates were beautiful and busy. Enjoy also the Museum of ice it is surprising Didier GlobeTrotter

  • We boarded the Allalinhorn in best conditions together with three other families and two guides. The way was before prepared and easy to find. To climb this mountain, it still needs a high mountain equipment and experience into overdrive!

  • The climb is worth a visit and allows to ski in the middle of August with a panorama of exception! Attention the ascent takes some time: 2 cable cars + the metro alpin, it takes about 40 minutes for a fee of € 75 / person (no difference between pedestrian and skier, resident's passport does not discount) the only view on the surrounding mountains is breathtaking as long as the air Zermatt helicopter flies over the panoramic terrace close! Grandiose and sublime!
