At an altitude of more than 3800m, it is the highest place in Europe to visit. Mind you however that oxygen is low and you risk to get disoriented if you stay too long.

This is a truly marvelous experience. If you have the capacity either hire a guide or know how to use crampons and ice axes, hike down the snowy ridge from the top station.
