Easiest doesn't mean easy. But you can climb a mountain at more than 4000m from sea level. Good shoes, ice crampons, a guide and a rope for the ice field. Take your time (oxygen is limited at this altitude) and you can go climb the last 400m of altitude in 90mn-2h if you are in good physical shape from the cable car station. If I did it, you can. But don't forget getting an experienced person to lead the rope (Local guides are easily available; They are not cheap, but going without experience would be a good way to test the emergency services in Zermatt). In the end, you'll feel at the top of the world!

Breithorn mountain is located opposite of the Matterhorn mountain and both mountains can be best viewed from the Gornergrat. The Breithorn mountain is 4164 meters high, one of several dozen peaks that are each over 4000 meters high in the Zermatt area. All the different mountains and glaciers in the area are all unique and makes one almost speechless when viewing them. See our reviews for the Gornergrat to get ideas for best viewing these beautiful mountains.

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 for people with limited or no mountaineering experience with a local guide, just keep in mind this is hard work and will take you around 4 hours of huffing and puffing at altitude. We saw people trying to go up - very unsuccessfully ! - with just their casual clothes and sneakers ... people, ok this is not Everest and you will not need a full down suite ... but it is still a mountain with glacier and crevasses, you NEED crampons and an ice-axe and proper boots. Don't be that person that requires rescue because you set out on your own on your sneakers!

Dream come true. Did the Snow/Glacier hiking of Breithorn with guide Mr Ludwig Imboden (Zermatters) on 24Aug2018. Had enjoyed a lot. Amazing experience. Also, I would like to specially say a Big Thank You to guide Mr Ludwig Imboden, whom was very helpful and understanding to my situation. I had turned up wearing a normal sport shoes and he had mentioned that it is not safe nor warm for my feet and ankles. He had specifically spent time borrowing a pair of snowshoes for me so that I can proceed with the hike. An experience that I will never forget and will be back more for other similar activities. The professional handling of the staffs whom were prompt and helpful to my queries had also made my day. Strongly recommend.
