Today’s walk takes you to the foot of Monte Rosa. Here the alpinists start their ascent to the famous Capanna Margherita (hut), named after the queen (and the pizza!), at 4500m, or the famous Lyskamm traverse. You will walk up to Colle Salza at 2882m then descend to Staffal/Anderbatt in the Lys valley, with stunning views of the glacier. For experienced and fit walkers only and subject to weather there is the option to hike to the “Alta Luce” panoramic point, located at nearly 3200m. Overnight B&B in Anderbatt, where your luggage awaits your arrival.
