Situated on the Swiss-Italian frontier, Monte Rosa is spectacular from all angles. More of a massif than a single mountain, Monte Rosa claims ten separate summits over 4000m, making it a mountaineer's paradise. The Tour of Monte Rosa is an adventure, challenging and very varied, taking a high route around the massif. In areas of true wilderness on this tour walkers will experience a sense of remoteness rarely found in the Alps.The trek takes walkers over high passes using ancient trails, to superb viewpoints and through fascinating alpine villages. Italy and Switzerland meet on the summit of Monte Rosa and the contrast between these two countries, their different culture, food and languages, gives this trek its originality. In Italy the walk spends considerable time high above the plains, visiting tiny hamlets, including the fascinating German-speaking Walser settlement, whilst the Swiss section crosses a glacier to reach Zermatt, dominated by the Matterhorn, before taking the impressive Europaweg trail to the spectacular village of Saas Fee.

A native Brit, she runs her own trekking business, leading guided walks and treks. Hilary has contributed to several British walking magazines and hiking guides. This is her fifth guidebook for Cicerone.Review:
'The Monte Rosa massif is the biggest in Europe, forming part of the Pennine Alps. Although there are ten peaks over 4,000m in the region, the author describes a trek around the massif rather than a series of climbs. The route is therefore accessible to most walkers.The 134km tour is divided into eight stages, suitable for a two week holiday, or it can be walked gradually over a longer period.'(Walking World Ireland / July - August 2007)
