View on the Wildhorn Massif in the Swiss Alps


The Wildhorn (3,248 m) is the highest peak of the Wildhorn group in the Bernese Alps. The first ascent was made by Gottlieb Samuel Studer in September 1843.

The mountain forms the boundary between the Canton of Valais and the Canton of Berne. Two small glaciers lie on the east face of the Wildhorn: the Glacier des Audannes and the Glacier de Ténéhet. The Tungelgletscher, a glacier measured as 1.9 km in length in 1973, has its source on the mountain's north-east face.
