Itinerary description

Highlights of this scenic walk between Zinal and Hotel Weisshorn include magnificent views of the high peaks and glaciers gracing the skyline at the head of the Zinal Valley and panoramic views of the rugged summits towering above the Rhone and Anniviers Valleys.

The trail features almost nonstop, breathtaking views of the massive glacier-clad peaks rimming the cirque at the head of the Zinal Valley vand the summits towering above the Anniviers and Rhone valleys.

An easy walk, traveling through meadows and trees along the Path of the Planets, soon leads to a trail ascending to the Hotel Weisshorn. This Victorian gem, set atop a grassy knoll, features wide-ranging views of the high peaks towering above the Rhone and Anniviers valleys.
