This summer went us to realise the Tour of Cervino. This trek is a route circulate of 9 stages around the glorious mountain of the Cervino or Matterhorn and that discurre by Swiss territory and Italino.
The total route is of more than 150 kilometres, with a desnivel positive accumulated of some 7.500 metres and a desnivel negative accumulated of some 11.000 metres. By the distance and throw them off balance already can you imagine that the route has a high difficulty and it is necessary to take into account that some steps are complex without arriving to be dangerous: like the High glacier of Arolla, descent to the shelter Take refuge of Prarayer and descent to the shelter Take refuge of Peruca.
We split of St. Niklaus, realising the following stages:
- St. Niklaus – Gruben
- Gruben – Zinal
- Zinal – The Ville
- Arolla – Shelter of Prarayer
- Shelter of Prarayer – Perreres
- Testa Grigia – Zermatt
- Sunnegga – Europahütte
- Europahütte – St. Niklau
The typically alpine landscape, is simply esplendido and the cervino with his 4.478 metres of altitude and his pyramidal form is impressive.
Beyond all doubt, this trek is one of the most recommended of the Alpes.
