Two jewels of the imperial crown

Zinalrothorn and Obergabelhorn from Northwest. Both, well over 4000


You will never find this concept, imperial crown, anywhere on a map, but every guide and every mountaineerer from Valais/ Wallis knows what's the matter.


At the highest point of the bottom of the Val d'Anniviers, is an alpine club refuge called "Grands Mountets", at 2900 - 3000 m, at the center of a fantastic circle of 4000's. That's the Imperial Crown, limiting the Val d'Anniviers from the Mattertal (Zermatt)
