This easy to climb three-thousander is often proclaimed to be THE mountain for top views in Valais. Rightly so, as here you enjoy close-up views of the Weisshorn and Dent Blanche, together with majestic Matterhorn in the backdrop.

Thanks for your rating
The first 500-meter altitude climb takes place with a very special cable car ride from the St-Luc village to the Alp Tignousa at the edge of the forest. Here you find an observatory and the planet path to the Hotel Weisshorn (1hour 20 mins), and equally as amaziing views from a vantage point.

Besides the Bella Tola, a climb on the Illhorn by Chandolin, highland hike to the rear Val d'Annivers valley and Zinal, or Meiden Pass crossing to the neighbouring Turmann Valley - or even on and over the Augstbord Pass into the Matter Valley are further adventurous options.
