Join Monterosa Est Himalayan Trail

Enjoy the highest mountain face in Europe!

Running this trail is an opportunity to get in touch with a piece of the history of the Alps. Macugnaga is an unusual Italian mountain village at the foot of Monte Rosa, the 4634m high mountain which forms the border with Switzerland to the north. The Monterosa Est Himalayan Trail race challenges runners over steep and technical terrain with distances of 103km, 60km, 38km, 22km and 14km. 

Macugnaga is a wonderful alpine town at 1327 meters altitude at the base of est wall of Monte Rosa. The history of Macugnaga, “Pearl of Monte Rosa” began in the twelfth century when the Walser, a people of Albanian origin from the Valais, occupied this pleasant basin of Valle Anzasca. This was the beginning of Walser colonization around Monte Rosa. Today the Walser tradition is still visible in the origins’ architecture and by costumes that the women of the village wear on special occasions. The Titsch language is still spoken by elderly into Dorf, a small settlement of 1200 A.C. with the church, cemetery and the ancient secular “Tiglio” tree. Running the trail will be an opportunity to get in touch with a piece of Alpine history.
