A guidebook to walking the The Tour of Monte Rosa, a 9-10 day, 134km trek circling Monte Rosa anti-clockwise from Zermatt. The high route hugs glaciers and has views of over ten 4000ers. All essential information is provided, including outline maps, route profiles, advice on glacier crossing and accommodation.

Seasons
Although only one section of the trek is on glaciers, the trails are often high and late lying snow can remain on shady slopes well into July. High summer is the ideal time for this trek, and earlier or later some slopes could be quite dangerous for walkers.

Centres
Zermatt, Grächen, Saas Fee, Macugnaga, Alagna, Gressonney St Trinité, St Jacques, Cervinia

Difficulty
The trek is ideal for keen hillwalkers who enjoy rocky terrain, long days and who have a sense of adventure. The one glacier crossing is easy doesn't require technical skills other than being able to walk on gentle terrain in crampons and knowing how to stay safe. Regular hiking gear will do the trick but a rope, harness and crampons could be required for the glacier section.

Must See
​Monte Rosa peaks, including the east face (highest wall in the Alps) and other summits - Lyskamm, Matterhorn, Theodule Glacier, Walser culture, alpine culture in Switzerland and Italy. Col Turlo - ancient route now remade by the Italian alpine. Fauna - especially the ibex. High alpine flora - notably the King of the Alps.
