Hint

Intro

The summit ridge of the Alphubel looks more like a hill than a mountain peak. The ascent of this four-thousand-metre peak in the Allalin group is challenging and requires an excellent level of fitness.

Description

The Alphubel – meaning “Alpine hill” – definitely lives up to its name. Its summit ridge is almost a kilometre long and is practically flat apart from a few peaks. It isn’t easy to pick out the main peak at 4,206 metres above sea level, since it doesn’t look particularly different from the other peaks on the Alphubel. This has been a source of confusion for many mountaineers. This distinctive mountain belongs to the Allalin group in Valais and is technically quite an easy climb. However, due to its length, the ascent requires more stamina than many other four-thousand-metre peaks. 

Further information and the SAC’s suggested routes

Climbing four-thousander summits requires good physical health, meticulous preparation and technical skills in mountain sports. We recommend booking a mountain guide. Switzerland Tourism accepts no liability in this case.
