Blauherd - Sunnegga (Marmot Trail)

The Mischabel Range

Zermatt - Breuil-Cervinia

A pretty walk along the ridge line of the face towards Blauherd. There's no tree cover and the path does drop away steeply to the right, so avoid this if you suffer from fear of heights!

Description

The path in German is called the Marmot path, as there are many marmots to be seen especially as you walk on the right hand side of the ridge. You can hear them whistling to each other, just make sure you don’t lose your footing as you are looking around; the drop is a little precipitous in places.

Difficulty

Moderate

Hiking along trails with some uneven terrain and small hills. Small rocks and roots may be present.
