At 4545 meters the Dom is the highest peak entirely within Switzerland and the third highest in the Alps. Summiting the highest peak in the imposing Mischabel group remains a goal for many an ambitious mountaineer. While less travelled than the other famed high peaks like the Mont Blanc and Dufourspitze the splendid feeling of being underway on one of the most beautiful snow peaks in the Alps with stunning panoramic scenery. Even though its technically not difficult, the elevation as well as the length of the trip are very demanding due to no cable car access. It is therefore advisable to prepare yourself accordingly and it is ideal to arrive 1-2 days prior to acclimatize.
