We took the lift up to Blauherd and hiked to Fluhalp. Easy hike and beautiful views of the Matterhorn and Lake Stellisee. Cute mountain hut and restaurant at Fluhalp. Would love to spend a night there next time!

Rothorn is about 3100 meters high, and offers fabulous vistas of the Matterhorn. The best view on offer is undoubtedly at sunrise, which falls on one of the four faces and gradually illuminates the others. It is conveniently accessible from Zermatt by the Zermatt Bergbahnen...More
