Monte Rosa in 3 days

Monte Rosa in 3 days : the Monte Rosa area is a vast glacial massif located between Zermatt and the Aosta Valley. It offers us the opportunity to climb beautiful snowy peaks over 4000m. We suggest you to go on 2 and a half days to fully enjoy these magnificent landscapes at high altitude. Spending 2 nights in a hut allows you to immerse yourself deeply in the heart of the high mountains.

Technical and physical level

The climb requires a good training and is addressed to sports people. You’ll be walking for between 6 and 9 hours per day, so you’ll have to prepare and practice cardio during your endurance trainings. (biking, running, hiking in the mountains …)

Don’t forget that you’ll be walking with a 8 kilograms backpack, this increases the amount of effort needed to walk, be sure to be training with this extra weight.
