Chamonix and Zermatt might have the most famous 4000ers but the Saas valley has the best selection of easy ones! The whole valley is lined on both sides with beautiful glaciated mountains that are ideal for the beginner or intermediate alpine climber to gain mileage on.

For more experienced climbers these peaks are still worth visiting for the views alone - the vistas from the summits listed here are amongst the finest in the Alps and will provide you with plenty of inspiration and a big ticklist regardless of what grade you climb!
