The Monte Rosa Tour
Category: Trekking

A week-long trek around Monte Rosa without climbing difficulties, to discover the Alpine paths of the Italian and Swiss valleys. Along the mule tracks and paths that have seen the Walser populations coming from neighboring Switzerland. Suitable for those who want to spend a pleasant week to discover the history, landscapes and people of the Monte Rosa.
The proposal is divided into daily stages from 5 to 8 hours, depending on the day, with ascents/descents of at least 1000m per stage.
