Mountaineering: Nadelhorn

SWITZERLAND | It’s high season for mountaineering, that means fully booked huts and a lot of mountaineers in the mountains. This weekend we went to the Nadelhorn, an easy mountain of 4327m. The hike up to the Mischabelhütte is pretty cool, it’s almost a Via Ferrata, I loved it! The hut has the most adorable…

Mountaineering: Huascarán Sur
