Klein Matterhorn near Zermatt

Klein Matterhorn near Zermatt

This mountain is near Zermatt, and I have climbed down it (half way). It was a lot farther than I thought it would be too. I got off the tram half way down and hiked the trail down. What a joy to come around a bend in the trail and see a tiny Alpine snack shop perched on the edge of the trail. I had Apfel Strudel mit Schlaggober. If you don’t know what that is, you’ve missed something. The Klein Matterhorn (Pennine Alps) (marketed as the “Matterhorn Glacier Paradise”) is the second highest peak of the Zermatt-Cervinia ski area in Switzerland, and the end point of the highest cable car in Europe. The peak delimits the area of the Plateau Rosa glacier and is at 3,883 metres (12,740 ft), with the cable car terminal at 3,820 metres (12,533 ft).
