The Alphubel (4206 m) is a mountain in the Pennine Alps in Switzerland. It is part of the Mischabel range, which culminates at the Dom (4,545 m). The first ascent of the mountain was by Leslie Stephen and T. W. Hinchliff with guides Melchior Anderegg and Peter Perren on 9 August 1860, starting at Täsch and via the south-east ridge and the Alphubeljoch. From the summit you see across the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa.
