Cabane Arpitettaz CAS 2786 m

Surrounded by Weisshorn, Zinalrothorn and Besso, this renovated alpine cabin is very attractive due to the impressive high alpine environment in the rearmost area of Val d'Anniviers. All the ascents are high alpine ventures. The cabin’s terrace invites the guests to stay and enjoy the glacier universe. Access is feasible for hikers, whereas the alpine col to the Tracuit cabin is only recommended for experienced mountain hikers.

 

This magnificently situated accommodation is located on a magnificent mountain meadow (Patois ar pitetta = small meadow). The hut is run by the members of the La Dôle section, so the food on offer is limited. For more substantial meals, self-catering is the order of the day! The spelling on the national map is "Arpitettaz" , but in literature and on old maps you can also find "Ar Pitetta" or "Arpitetta".
