  • Castor and Pollux, the two dioscuri, are remembered in the name of two border peaks. The Pollux is a little lower than Castor, but is mostly found in that place between two hills. Salibile without difficulty or a snowy slide on the Western side, or from a clifftop place further East (the two via reach a Summit from where you continue on a snowy crestone), it is a Summit usually visible both from the Swiss side as from the Italian. A 4000, height anyway notable, which is a characteristic picture in this part of the Alps.

  • We took a walk on the Pollux in connection with acclimatization before walking tour to the Matterhorn. We stayed at the cottage on the Italian side before the trip up on the Pollux. Nice mix of going with grappling irons and without on the ascent of Pollux. Steep and challenging at the top of a do not like heights. Is recommended.

Where to stay in Zermatt

When staying in car-free Zermatt, proximity to amenities is key, as you'll be mostly restricted to traveling by foot. Populated by charming Swiss chalet-style hotels and inns, Zermatt may be humble in character, but not in price. Most of the hotels are fairly expensive, though there is the odd hostel and pension that might offer a slight discount. To save yourself a bit of money, look into renting an apartment in lieu of a hotel. If you're really strapped for cash, consider camping instead--this area offers a year-round mild climate.
