Simple and short ascent thanks to the Plateau Rosa cable car. One of the 4000m of the prestigious Monte Rosa massif !
Starting from the Testa Grigia (3479m) reached by the Rosa Plateau lifts (Cervinia, Italy), the Breithorn is an ideal summit for a first experience in high altitude. Its ascension, exclusively in snow, is a fun introduction to high altitude snow routes. The view of the 4000 of the Valais, including the Cervin, is itself worth the trip. The Breithorn is for people who want to discover the world of mountaineering.
