Description

The Matterhorn (4,478m), the Mountain of Mountains, is an iconic peak in the Alps. Reaching its summit has been a dream of almost every climber. And you can came make that dream come true! So join me on this adventure to stand on the top of this famous peak via the normal route.

The Matterhorn is one of those mountains that doesn’t need a presentation. It has very interesting form, almost like a symmetrical pyramid top. Its unique form and impressive height, make it a legendary peak for mountaineers around the world.

Also going by the name of Cervino, the Matterhorn lies right at the border between Switzerland and Italy, within the area of Monte Rosa in the Pennine Alps. And it looks over the town of Zermatt in Switzerland, a charming town located in the canton of Valais. Climbing the Matterhorn is the perfect excuse to visit this lovely place and learn more about the local culture.

There are four faces in the Matterhorn, on each compass point. And they surround stunning glaciers, split by four ridges, Zmutt,  Hörnli, Leone and Furggen. Being able to see these glaciers as you reach the summit of this legendary mountain, is a one in a lifetime opportunity.

To reach the top of Matterhorn, we’ll take the normal route. But, even if it’s the one most people normally take, it is still a very exposed and difficult one. Thus, the ascent can’t be underestimated. As your guide, I promise your safety will be my priority.

Since this is a difficult ascent, you’ll need an excellent physical condition. Also, you’ll need previous training and experience on ridges and rock climbing. If you have it, and want to join this adventure, please send me a request. Let me guide you to the summit of the Matterhorn!
