Mountain Guides in the Haslital
No other valley or famous climbing region has played such a big part in accessing and climbing famous alpine peaks as here in the Haslital.
Since the beginning of glacier research, some 150 years ago, mountain guides from the Haslital have enjoyed an excellent reputation. Some of our ancestors were famous world wide for their climbing abilities.
The Haslital was praised by the English tourist Coolidge as «a true nursery of first class mountain guides».
Also the alpinist and author Cunningham wrote in «Pioneers of the Alps»: «The Haslital has produced a greater number of first class guides than any other place in the Oberland, perhaps even as any other place in the alps!«
