Itinerary description

Astonishing trail, all through the UNESCO World Heritage high trail, from Bettmerhorn Station to Eggishorn Station, going from 2647 m up to 2869 m, with the amazing view of the Great Aletsch Glacier during the whole route.
Difficulty is not in the difference level between start and end, buy in the use of hands and concentration during most of the trail, because a single mistake could be fatal.
Probably, one of the most intense, breathtaking and spectacular routes I've ever done.
