Monte Rosa tour

The Monte Rosa tour, sometime called “Spaghetti tour” (for the good food of the Italian huts), is a great itinerary in altitude which links many different 4000 m peaks moving hut by hut between Italy and Switzerland. There are many ways to do it, with the possibility of climbing many peaks, to start from Zermatt or Cervinia and manage the difficulty according with the fitness and experience.
Last week we started from Cervinia (the 4th of July) and we did a 5 days traverse finding good conditions of snow and great weather everyday…
