Day 2

After a short ascent (+ 15min.), a somewhat steep descent to the Zmutt glacier awaits you, 200m above the moraine slope. Along the torn shore of the Tiefmatten glacier and past the foot of the Stockji rock face to the glacier plateau of Tiefmatten, the beautiful ascent begins. Roped to your mountain guide, you cross the glacier to the upper glacier plateau towards Col de la Tête Blanche 3'589m and continue to the summit of Tête Blanche 3'710m.

 

Now the scenic descent to the village of Arolla is waiting for you. After a well-deserved break you make your way home or we can organise a transfer back to Zermatt.
