Monterosa - Champoluc, Alagna, Gressoney, Cervinia, Macugnaga, Saas-Fee, Zermatt


From the melting snow and the retiring glaciers on top of the  Monte Rosa massif, rivers formed the well-known valleys of this area. From the Middle Ages people have been building their villages here and today those villages are the famous resorts of Monterosa. Starting from at the feet of the Matterhorn, we find Cervinia and Zermatt, going northeast to Saas Fee, and going southeast to Champoluc, Gressoney, Alagna and Macugnaga.

There are more than 20 peaks over 4000 m in the Monte Rosa area and many of them are reachable from a beautiful rifugi located on glaciers.
