We popped up the Breithorn after we completed the Haute Route. As we all had mountaineering experience and were well acclimatized we went up and down from the Kleine Matterhorn station in just under 2.5 hours. That said this mountain is very reasonable to do...More

Oh my God! If there is a majestic view, it must be from here. People walk up from Cervinia in three hours, or for much less fitness from Matterhorn Glacier Paradies. In spring there are plenty of people walking up, but please take the right...More

Climbed/Walked up to summit from Klein Matterhorn. Top section is pretty steep but non technical. You do need to be properly roped up and wear crampons. Pretty crazy but saw one guy walking on his own, despite warning signs,one slip and potentially you end up...More

While the Matterhorn is the main attraction, the glacier covered Breithorn is very impressive too. Both stunning mountain peaks are best seen from viewing platforms on the 3,883-metre-high Little Mattherhorn.
