No other mountain stands apart from the rest like the way Matterhorn does. One of the most majestic mountains, Matterhorn lies at the foot of Zermatt, a car free village in the canton of Valais. We traveled on Gornergrat Bahn from Zermatt. It was a clear day and we couldn’t stop photographing and gazing at this striking mountain all throughout our trip. Up on the mountain you’ll get sweeping views of the surrounding Alps with Matterhorn standing proud and tall among them. Cogwheel train also known as rack railway takes you to Gornergrat railway station in about thirty minutes. It is said that it is best to take the trip during sunrise and sunset.
During my trip to Switzerland, I was really excited to travel in this train journey. I booked a Swiss travel pass which cost me around 180 Euros and covered all trains inside Switzerland including this one. If you are travelling with Euro rail pass then this train is not free for you. Also seat reservation are compulsory for this train. All the catering services are present inside this train, and you can book a buffet for you inside. The train is a panoramic journey and I felt that I am almost flying through these beautiful mountains.
