Rothornhütte SAC 3198 m

Almost 1600 metres directly above Zermatt, the large stone building is located close to Triftgletscher and south of Zinalrothorn. Due to geological problems, however, the cabin needs to be replaced by a new construction on a stable promontory. The cabin is the starting point for high alpine tours in summer. A visit to the cabin pays off for the panoramic view of the four-thousanders of Valais from Dom on to Monte Rosa and Matterhorn.
