Access roadsEdit

The car access is both from Italian and Swiss sides by following the road towards the Simplon pass. The closest cities are Domodossola on the Italian side and Brig on the Swiss side. If you need accommodation on the pass, you have Simplon Hospiz (Hospice du Simplon).

Normal climbing routeEdit

To climb Hübschhorn you start walking from the road towards a small lake which is directly below the mountain (Rotelsee). From there continue up by following a hardly visible steep path. You will need around three hours from the road to the summit.

You will be able to see the complete route to Wasenhorn and the glacier route to Breithorn (Simplon), and enjoy the views of the Weissmies group in the south-west direction.
