In Switzerland we can find many peaks under the same name. Strahlhorn is example (better known above 4000 m peak in Pennine Alps).
Strahlhorn in Bernese Alps is situated in ridge leading to almost 4000 Wannenhorn.
Peak is just above longest glacier in Alps - Aletsch.
From summit you have stunning view of whole glacier from icefield to end of tongue.
Panorama contains many known alpine peaks, just like: Aletschhorn, Monch, Jungfrau, Eiger - in Bernese Alps, Matterhorn, Mischebel, Fletschhorn - in Pennine Alps, Monte Leone and many other peaks in Lepontine Alps. Because there is no marked trails leading to the summit, you can often be here the one (alone), even in high season.
Getting ThereIf you want go to Strahlhorn, you must reach village Fiesch, in the district of Goms in the canton of Valais in Switzerland.
From Fiesch is big height difference, so I suggest to use Eggishorn cable car to first station - Fiescheralp.
Red TapeNo limitations.
CampingNearest camping is in Fiesch, Also down in the Rhone valley there are many hotels and camping places, I choose nice camping in Brig.

If you want to sleep in heart of the mountains, the best place is mountain hut Gletscherstube, just under Strahlhorn.
