Allalinhorn, Swiss Alps

3.3
#59 of 65 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.

  • Allalin after a lovely tour on that, we have decided for the recommendation of the Chief. The chicken soup was however not day-fresh and already sour. We have not ate them accordingly. The note at the senior staff was provided with the response that it must taste so. Finally, we were allowed to pay even the soup (CHF 16.00). The senior staff has let no longer show up although you wanted to ask in the kitchen. At least the impressive mountain panorama has compensated us.

  • It took us 2 hours to get there. Wonderfull view buth we came for a small lunch but the only thing they have is pie?? From 15u30 you can eat... that's a missed chance.  more »
  • Original with a wonderfull view. OK to drink something but the price of a saussage is just revolting... I assume the view is part of it. Nevertheless, a Nice stop.  more »
