  • Here's 2 nd. Go down to Zermatt for the first time in the 1500 m descent was really tired. Even herd of goats or reverse slow down, such as the Matterhorn, very happy.

  • In August although on the Esplanade where leave you the Rothorn cable car there is no snow, this is next to a glacier and the Matterhorn, where if there is snow. The views of this place are beautiful. Also there is a bar with a terrace to take something.

  • 我和我的嚮導在Rothorn這裡作paragliding (air taxi),這裡真的是一個非常好的地點!高度剛剛好,而且可以俯瞰五湖中的其中幾個湖,並且飛行時,前方就可以看得見馬特洪峰,再往下看,則是可以俯瞰整個策馬特城鎮。這個地點真的太適合作滑翔翼了!
