The Matterhorn

The Matterhorn – this famed Swiss mountain is located on the Swiss-Italian border, standing at 4,478 meters (14,690 ft.), which makes it one of the highest peaks in the Alps, and is reputed to be the most photographed mountain in the world.

Even today the ascent of the Matterhorn is very challenging and can only be achieved by expert mountaineers with excellent equipment and a competent guide. At the foot of the most popular route stands the Hörnli Hut at 3,260m, home to the Matterhorn Base Camp (reopened in 2015 after a full renovation) and the Matterhorn mountain inn.
