Photographer's Note

A classical view of the "Matterhorn" for today.

The "Matterhorn" is one of the world's most famous mountain. It is located above the village of Zermatt and raises 4478 meters high, but is not the highest mountain in Switzerland.
The first men who managed to climb to the top of this mountain was a group of seven mountaineers around Whymper from Great Britain on July 14, 1865. Four of the seven men died on the way back.

It is now climbed by hundred of people each summer.
