So often you just stumble upon great things without much research. After an idle day in Zermatt and comparing how the area fell short of Bernese Oberland, I wondered what else to do. I decided to the cable car to the top of the Klein Matterhorn - To Matterhorn Glacier Paradise
|Views from the top|

The peak is at 3,883 metres with the cable car terminal at 3,820 metres.
From the top you can get views of Italy. On a clear day even Mont Blanc - the tallest mountain in Alps is visible. The day I went was not that day.
It costs about CHF 64 to get to the top or CHF 32 if you hold a Swiss pass, but the money charged is worth every penny.
