“Simply Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Didn't climb this mountain but did take cablecar to Klein Matterhorn and the view of the Breithorn was fantastic. Climbers started their assent from the Glacier Paradise and it was absolutely messmirising to watch them climb. They soon looked like little 'ants' making their way across the bright white of the peak. You could also see where avalanches had occured. It must be exhillarating to climb it but I was happy just taking photos but well worth seeing from the Glacier Paradise.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

A small bunch of adventure travel professionals got together to do an accent. It was a great clear sunny day so it could not be anything else but a great day. A easy 4000 meter peak for anyone with reasonable fitness to get some stunning views

“An easy climb to a spectacular view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Breithorn is both beautiful from Zematt as it is from Champoluc (italy). From the arrival of the Klein Matterhorn cablecar it is merely a short hike to the top, providing a gorgeous and limitless spectacular view on the Matterhorn to the Mont Blanc (France). Highly recommended for a first experience on a 4000+ m mountain.

“easy 4000m plus ascent if the weathers right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We climbed the Breithorn on our last visit in 2007 when the weather was excellent, this time we encountered very different conditions, mist and snow, avalanche warnings and lightly covered crevasses on the approach over the glacier . this time we did not summit.We could not see the ridge to the right hand side of the summit because of the mist.The ridge is the way we went to the top last time .The vertical face is on the left of the summit, not a place to be in bad visibility. Theres always next time!
