... is 3,883 metres or 12,739 feet high and this year on August 15th is the 150th anniversary of its first ascent. Every night at 9.30, 10.00 and 10.30pm skiers have been lighting different ski paths up the Matterhorn and it looks beautiful.

The sun came out from behind the clouds and we decided to skip the cable car ...
... probably one of the cutest towns I have ever seen. Nestled in the midst of the Alps, this town does not allow cars and only features these crazy little mini bus/van things that shuttle people around to the abundance of ski chalets. Just check out this picture on their website. So cute! You can ski, hike, or take a scenic train to the top of the mountain if you want, all under the surreal shadow of the Matterhorn.
