... down went flying to the back of the train.
we made our way up this rather steep mountain the Matterhorn was playing hide
& seek with us. Cameras were out the windows trying to get the best shots

of course was doing the same but then I thought I might as well sit and relax
as I will get loads of shots from the summit station!!! Big mistake, and how
wrong I was.
the time we arrived ...

to today’s hike, the amazing new Sunnegga funicular which is wholly inside the mountain
behind Zermatt. Access to the funicular’s ground station is via a 150 metre

Sunnegga station does one see daylight.
