Hiking underneath Matterhorn

Zermatt

On our first night we relaxed and explored the town

After some heavy hiking in Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald, we took it easy, only attempting the 5 lakes hike (5-Seenweg).

We had to get a hiking stick to survive the large elevation changes on the trail.

After the 4th lake, we decided to split off the path and head down the mountain all the way to Zermatt.

We stumbled upon this small village on the mountain with some restaurants for weary hikers.

We ended our stay in Zermatt with fondue! Tomatofondue (our favorite) and traditional 3 cheese.
