Facts About Strahlhorn.
Strahlhorn is one of the underrated peaks found at the Pennine Alps. It stands at 4190m above sea level. Some trekkers end up discovering other peaks from this mountain. Or it may have been discovered from a hiking trip in one of its adjacent peaks found at the Dom, the Alphubel or any other mountain found in the Mischabel Group in the Alps. Otherwise known as “The Strahlhorn”. It occasionally caused confusion among new tourists as there is another mountain at the Bernese Alps of the same name.
How to get to the peak of Strahlhorn?
Starting from Saas Valley will be a little familiar to you by now. It is one of the starting points of the other Alpine summit, Alphubel. Drive from the Geneva International Airport towards A1. Drive to Losanne then turn to the A9 up to Visp. From Visp, drive upwards to Stalden then get into the Saastal. On this route, you will get to Saas Fee. From here, take one of the lifts towards the Britannia hut.
What to expect at Strahlhorn?
A route from Italy is available for tourists coming from that side of the Alps. But most treks start at the Britannia hut, a highly recommended path as this is one of the closest to the peak itself. Contacting Britannia hut’s reservations’ desk would lead to real-time recommendations too.
