Took the lift system from Zermatt to Blauherd, and hiked from there. Go left from Blauherd to avoid hiking under the ski-lift infrastructure. Couple of hours to unter Rothorn, then another hour or so to the Rothorn summit. Sadly in cloud on this visit.

At the train station we met a group of Japanese tourists who are returning from watching the sunrise on the Matterhorn. It is another beautiful day but with a slight risk of thunder in the late afternoon. The... More

The landscape is a bit marred by the skiing infrastructure that you have to walk through on the way, but once above that the path to the summit is good, and the views from the very top very rewarding. There is uplift options available to take you most of the way if you don't want to do the whole walk... More
