The topali hut of the SAC Section Monte Rosa, newly built in summer 2002 by the SAC Section Geneva, is located above Zaniglas (St. Niklaus) in the Nikolaital/Mattertal at 2'674 m at the foot of the Distlegrat. It is considered as an ideal starting point for climbing the Barrhörner, which at 3'610 m is one of the highest hiking peaks in the Alps. The Topali hut is a stage stop on the Tour de Cervin, the Topali-Weisshorn-Höhenweg and the Via Valais Tour.
