  • The mountain is actually altissima, too cold, the walks are held in groups, connected by strings, is a real adventure and for the few, it is not for anyone, you have to be in shape, be physically fit.

  • We have climbed the mountain with a mountain guide as a group. Sure one of the easiest 4000, which you can climb. Still a great experience and a great view.

  • from Cervinia take teodulo or up to the plants until the gray head, 3300 and 3450 m, here you are sleeping in the shelter of the Matterhorn guides and the next morning it's off to the peak, the glacier path easy, from the top the views are immense.
