Mönch Peak Tours

Mönch Peak
Mönch is a mountain peak in the Switzerland’s Bernese Alps that, together with Eiger and Jungfrau, forms one of the most recognizable groups of mountains in the country. Located on the border between Valais and Bern, it is the most climbed of the three peaks. Mönch was first summited in 1857 and today, is thought to be a good starting point for climbing in the area.  A one-day climb up Mönch can be a good way to adjust to the altitude and get an introduction to climbing in the area. The normal route follows the southeast ridge, which includes come exposed ridge climbing on snow and gneissic rock. The Nollen route on Mönch’s northwest side is considered more challenging due to the presence of ice.

Practical Info

Mid-June to September is prime climbing season for Monch. To get there from Interlachen, take the train to Jungfraujoch. From there, it is a short walk to the start of the route along the southeast ridge of the mountain. Expect it to take about 2 or 3 hours up the southeast ridge and another two hours down. Guides can be hired on a per day basis and range from $200 to $400 depending on how many climbers there are per guide.
