Trekking in the Silvretta and Ratikon Alps Paperback
by Kev Reynolds
This guidebook describes 3 Alpine treks, between 5 and 8 days long, as well as 12 full or half day hut-to-hut routes.
The three treks suitable for moderately experienced trekkers, but requiring no specialist equipment, are the Tour of the Silvretta, the Prattigauer Hohenweg and the Ratikon Hohenweg, two of which can be combined to provide a fortnight of high-altitude hiking among such peaks as Piz Buin, Piz Linard, Dreilanderspitz, Schesaplana, Sulzfluh and Drusenfluh and over some classic Alpine passes.
The Silvretta and Ratikon ranges straddle the borders of Switzerland, Austria and Liechtenstein.
Also included are descriptions of nearby climable peaks for those with excess energy and favourable conditions, and for those who prefer to plan their own tours 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 tips on gear, planning, language and further reading, to fully enjoy your time in the Alps.
