Known for its characteristic pyramid shape, the Matterhorn is a mountain  above the city of Zermatt in the Canton of Valais. On this hiking program, I invite you to explore this famous mountain’s surroundings.

We’ll start our hike from Schwarzsee Lake and then follow a steep path to Hirli, the eastern ridge of the Matterhorn at 2,889 meters above sea level. Afterwards, we’ll continue our hike to Hörnlihütte (3,260 meters). This mountain hut is located at the base of the Matterhorn.

From this point, we’ll catch outstanding views of the Mischabel Massif, the Monte Rosa, the Breithorn and the Weisshorn. On our way back, we’ll go through Stafelalp and the Zmutt village until we reach Zermatt.

Please, consider that this hike has a duration of around 5.30 hours and requires a very good level of fitness.

If you find this hiking program attractive, do not hesitate to send the request to book your place. I’ll be happy to guide you around this fantastic area in Switzerland.
