Gran Zebrù

The 3,851 m high Gran Zebrù is an imposing glacier in the Ortles Alps and one of the highest mountains of this massif.

The Gran Zebrù (Königspitze, in German) is considered to be one of the most famous mountains of the Ortles Alps and is situated at the border of South Tyrol and the Lombardy, in the province of Sondrio.

The first ascent dates back to August 1864, protagonists of which were the mountaineers Francis Fox Tuckett, T. F. and E. N. Buxton from Great Britain as well as the Swiss mountain guides Christian Michel and Franz Biner. The group started from the village of Santa Caterina Valfurva in the province of Sondrio, reached the peak after 7 hours and descended to Solda in Val Venosta.

Alpinists and climbers can look forward to a fascinating panorama as well as a great course. However, this route is really challenging and only recommended to experienced alpinists. As most of the paths traverse the glacier, you need to carry high alpine equipment.
