Description

A steep and steady climb directly above Zermatt, Valais, takes you to the charming Rothorn Mountain Hut.

It’s 3198 metres above sea level, sitting at the foot of the Zinalrothorn, one of Zermatt's massive 4000ers.

From the hut you find yourself above the clouds in the land of the high alpine giants, surrounded by the Weißhorn group.

The hike has an elevation difference of 1600m at a steep gradient, so it's only going to be enjoyable for experienced hikers! **Sources** https://www.outdooractive.com/de/route/wanderung/walliser-alpen/aufstieg-zur-rothornhuette/23904257/
