The Weisshorn hut stands on a crag offering glorious views of the nearby south-east face of the Weisshorn (4,506 m) along with 18 other peaks above 4,000 m.
The cosy mountain hut run by the Basel section of the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC) is a popular base for mountaineers planning ambitious climbs such as the extremely demanding ascent of the Weisshorn.
The hike up to the hut and back down to the valley requires a high level of fitness as well as good knees. equipment We recommend: * Good footwear * Hiking poles (optional) # Clothing suitable for the weather (always carry a waterproof)
