Matterhorn Glacier Trail
The Matterhorn Glacier Trail is a 6.4 km long hiking route that takes approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes to walk between the Trockener Steg gondola lift station and the Schwarzsee station. Starting at an elevation of 2,928m, this popular route allows hikers to enjoy the unique high-altitude terrain of rocks, glaciers, and lakes on the mountain, and to appreciate the overwhelming presence of the east face of the Matterhorn.
Located on the border between Switzerland and Italy, the 4,478-meter-high Matterhorn is one of the most beautiful mountains in the Alps. The sharp, pyramid-like peak against the blue sky is a magnet for people from all over the world. There are many observation spots and hiking trails that allow non-mountaineers to view the mountain easily, including a mountain climbing train and a ropeway.
