Sasseneire is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.493m (8,179ft) above the sea level, located between Val de Moiry and Val d'Herens, in the district of Hérens in the canton of Valais in Switzerland.
The road to the summit of the Sasseneire ("the black rock"), located in the Swiss Pennine Alps, is rocky and gravel. The slope is very steep, consists of loose stones and becomes even steeper and rocky in the upper part. 4x4 vehicle required. The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. Even in summer you can confront with snowy days. Temperatures here in the winter are brutally cold. The steep is over than 30%. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point.
