The Matterhorn Trail.
On the border between Switzerland and Italy, it towers over the Swiss village of Zermatt and the Italian village Breuil-Cervinia in the Val Tournanche.
The Matterhorn has four faces which face the four compass points: The Hörnli ridge of the northeast (the center ridge in the view from Zermatt) is the usual climbing route. My french friend Heloise and I did a short 5-hour-hike of the Matterhorn trail. The views of the mountain and surroundings were impressive!
After reading books, looking at pictures and more stuff about Matterhorn, being there was a dream come true for me. Actually, a short visit to the Swiss border was more than enough for me, but I managed to get the closest possible to my dream.
This amazing place is really a paradise, I hope and look forward to be on its summit some day:-)
