Four thousand-metre peaks within reach of Randa

There are 38 mountains around Zermatt, which are higher than 4,000 m. Several of these four thousand-metre peaks can be climbed from Randa, including the Dom and Weisshorn.



Bishorn

The Bishorn is one of the Alps’ easier 4,000-metre summits to climb, when tackled from the Cabane de Tracuit via the west flank.

Dirruhorn

The Dirruhorn is the last summit of the Nadelgrat ridge. It is located in the same massif as the Mischabel group of mountains, which is home to Switzerland’s highest peaks (Dom, Täschhorn).

Details

Dom

The Dom is the highest mountain located entirely on Swiss territory. The majestic peak is part of the Mischabel group.

Details

Hohbärghorn

This peak belongs to the famous Nadelgrat pinnacle chain, north-west of Switzerland’s highest mountains.

Details

Lenzspitze

The Lenzspitze is a perfect pyramid with sharp edges and steep faces.

Details

Nadelhorn

The Nadelhorn has an unusual feature: a hole through the rock, just a few metres below the summit. However, it is visible only to mountaineers climbing the neighbouring Dom.

Details

Täschhorn

The Täschhorn is the uncrowned queen of the Mischabel group. Even if the Dom is 55 m higher, the Täschhorn catches the eye with its appealing triangular form. The demanding south-east ridge and Teufelsgrat ridge are legendary.

Details

Weisshorn

The Weisshorn is the secret star among the 4,000-metre peaks around Zermatt. It boasts a pleasing, symmetrical triangular shape; for mountaineers, it offers a thrilling challenge.
