Allalinhorn, Swiss Alps

3.5
#73 of 100 in Nature in Swiss Alps
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.

  • For the climb, it must borrow 2 gondola and then the metro alpin (approximately 30 min), arrived at the top there is the ice tunnel to visit (beautiful) and especially to stroll around the restaurant where there is a breathtaking view. The restaurant revolves (1 hour trip I think it's great), pity it is not possible to eat fondue or raclette yet typically valaisan. If not for the wine fault, count - 75 per person to ride without discount but this is more than adequate, do it at least once in his life.

  • A wonderful playground for hiking, climbing and skiing. The village has excellent cable car services to the surrounding mountains which have walks and climbs for all abilities. We'll be back!  more »
  • With the gondola, as well as the Metro Alpine reaching up to the Middle Allalin. You can handle this route but also on foot. By the Middle Allalin for the Allalinhorn you must then climb up. When weather is nice, you have a beautiful panorama on the Alps. The Middle Allalin also offers a beautiful view and can also in the revolving restaurant to do something, it was a meal or just something to drink. Also worth a visit to the ice pavilion.
