Schönbielhorn 3472m


from Zermatt via Schönbielhütte and South ridge


A remote place and real gem. Schönbielhorn attracts not with its hight, there are better options around in this stunning circle of 4000m peaks in the Zermatt region. But all the way, from Zermatt to Schönbielhütte you will find yourself in a perfect trailrunning territory with runnable flow trails and of top of it the rocky south ridge offers easy, enjoyable climbing up to the summit. A long day outside with 30km and 2000 meters of elevation gain, but worth every single meter! Go for it on a stable day where you have free view without clouds towards the attractions of Matterhorn, Dent d'Hérens, Dent Blanche, Obergabelhorn, etc.
