Photographer's Note

A morning view of (a part of) the tremendous and impressive panorama that you can see from the Monte Rosa hut.

The kind of moment and view that makes you feel special or part of something special.

The trek starts at Rotenboden and leads along the extended lateral moraine. At the entrance to the Gorner Glacier, tall metal ladders, permanently attached to the rock, lead down to the river of ice.

The Gorner Glacier is the second-longest in the Alps, after the Aletsch Glacier. Until just a few years ago, hikers could walk comfortably across the glacier to the Monte Rosa hut with little risk. Today, conditions have become unstable, and so hikers are strongly recommended to undertake the trek with a mountain guide.
