A fantastic high altitude glacier trek, continuing the "haute route" : a splendid itinerary from Zermatt to Saas Fee, close to the numerous 4000ers of the Valais region, with the Monte Rosa and the Matterhorn always in sight, and the ascent of l’Allalin (4027 m) and Ulrichshorn (3925 m), in one of the most prestigious range in the Alps.


Highlights
• The glacial world of the Valais region.
The ascent of two beautiful peaks, including one "4000er".
• Unforgettable huts, including the Mishabel hut, eyrie facing the great landscape.
The comfortable hotel in Saas Fee to rest in the middle of the trip.
