This program is a shorter vesion of the famous TMR – Tour of Monte Rosa. We will do 5 days of trekking around the Massif of Monte Rosa to reach most of the pretty villages and valleys surrounding the second highest mountain in The Alps. It is not only a trekking but mostly an incredible experience to discover culture and traditions of this remote area on the border between Italian and Swiss Alps. Walser comunities have been living in this lands mostly isolated for more then 1000 years: unique is the architecture of their buildings, the wise way of surviving the harshness of the climate and the severe and wild environment of the mountains.
Day by day program TMR – Tour Monte Rosa 5 days:
1st day: Meeting in Alagna in the morning where we will do the initial briefing about weather and conditions and we will check together clothing and trekking gear. It will be possible to rent all the gear you need. Please let us know in time if you need anything so we can organize for the renting with the local shop. As soon we are ready we will start the walk up to Rifugio Pastore that we will reach in a couple of hour. An easy first day will give the possibility to everyone to get use to the environement and get confident with the group members. A nice dinner will be the welcome of Monte Rosa traditions surrounded by the beauty of the Val Sesia Natural Park.
2nd day: Early start in the morning to reach Colle del Turlo where we will have a small snack before the long way down in Val Quarazza to reach Borca and then Macugnaga. If we will get there in time we can get the cablecar up to Passo di Monte Moro and stay over night at the Rifugio Oberto Maroli closed to the Pass. If too late we will stay in Macugnaga.
3rd day: From Passo di Monte Moro we will walk down to Mattmark Lake and then to Saas Almagell. From this pretty village we will get the Post Bus to reach Staldenried where we will change to get the bus up to Zermatt. A nice dinner to Hotel Derby with Matterhorn Nord Face looking at us will be the reward for the long day.
