  • Via gondola and ropeway from the Sunnegga paradise, Rothorn paradise arrived. But, how to continue to climb, Trek. The Lake seen inverted Matterhorn on the way and really impressed! It is recommended!

  • The day we were in Zermatt, was mostly cloudy, so it was difficult to see this mountain, but certainly worth the effort!

  • This beautiful mountain of 3,000 metres you can see easily, always and when the day is clear, then it is worth climbing!
