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.
Don't go by its size. Zermatt might not be popular and mighty like Zurich or Geneva, but this small, snow-clad city at the hills of the Matterhorn peak has much adventure and pleasure to boast of. Plus, its a nice way to approach the country-side charm of Switzerland before moving on.
Best Time To Visit
Best time to visit Zermatt is from February to April and from September to October
