Description

Step-by-step guide to three great Alpine treks in the Silvretta and Rätikon ranges on the borders of Switzerland, Austria and Liechtenstein, each roughly a week long and starting from, or near, the popular and accessible base of Klosters. The three routes, all challenging but requiring no specialist equipment, are the Tour of the Silvretta, the Prättigauer Höhenweg and the Rätikon Höhenweg, two of which can be combined to provide a fortnight of high-altitude hiking among such peaks as Piz Buin, Piz Linard, Dreiländerspitz, Schesaplana, Sulzfluh and Drusenfluh and over some classic Alpine passes. also included are descriptions of nearby climable peaks for those with excess energy and favourable conditions. Accompanying the trek descriptions are 12 half-day hut-to-hut routes for those who prefer to plan their own tours and a directory of all the mountain huts in the area, providing all the information you could possibly need. Written by Alpine expert Kev Reynolds, this book includes all the information novice and experienced trekkers will need, including tips on gear, planning, language and further reading, to enjoy their time in the Alps.
