The uncrowned queen of the Mischabel group

Täschhorn 4'491 m. a.s.l.

Ice and rock tour

The Täschhorn belongs to the Mischabel massif and is one of the difficult 4'000m peaks of the Valais.

The first ascent of the Täschhorn was made on 30 July 1862 by Stefan and Johannes Zumtaugwald, J. Llewelyn Davies, J.W. Hayward and Peter-Josef Summermatter via the NW flank (Kin flank) directly from Randa.

We lead the tour in two stages with an extra night in the Mischabeljoch bivouac. On the 1st day we climb the Alphubel from the Täschhütte and then traverse to the Mischabeljoch bivouac. On the 2nd day the Täschhorn is climbed from the Mischabeljoch bivouac.

On request the ascent of the Täschhorn or the crossing of the Dom directly from the Täsch hut is possible.

Remark:

The ascent of the Täschhorn is a demanding high altitude climb. Please inform us when you book which other 4’000 meters peaks you have climbed and what other alpine experience you have (Kilimanjaro and Mont Blanc are non comparable, as they are not rock climbs).

We strongly recommend a training climb with a mountain guide. The preparation tours can also be done in a group, if another person has registered for it.
