The Walker's Haute Route, Part II

From Arolla to Zermatt | 5 Days

save bookmark

Chamonix - Zermatt! The Walker's Haute Route is surely the most traditional alpine trekking ever. It connects the two mountaineering metropolises from Mont Blanc to Matterhorn. The British Alpine Club established the route in the middle of the 19th century for its members as "The High Level Route". Then as now, a fascinating experience on the way through lonely valleys, over high alpine passes in front of a magnificent backdrop with all the 4000 meter peaks! Give it a go!

You start the second part of the Walker's Haute Route at the very back of the Val d'Hérens in Arolla, then a first highlight awaits you with the almost 3000 meter high Col du Tsaté, before the Glacier du Moiry is within reach and below the water of the lake of the same name shimmers turquoise blue. From Val d'Anniviers, the route leads over the Meidpass to Gruben. Not only the altitude, but above all the view to the 4000 meter peaks is simply breathtaking. Then Augstbordpass is remote, lonely and wild, before you reach the idyllic Jungenalp and, as the crowning glory, Zermatt on the Europaweg.
