The Oberrothorn is the heighest trekking peak in the swiss alps at 3414m, but is fairly easy to reach because it is a short walk (500m climb) from the Unterrothorn which can be reached by cable car from Zermatt (the Rothorn cable car, reached from the Sunnegga underground furnicular.

I say fairly easy - but as this is above 3,000m, you will probably feel the effects of altitude - so take it slowly. If the ground is covered by snow, or the weather is bad - it isn't worth attempting unless you're equiped and experienced.

There's a staggering 360 view from the point - including the Matterhorn - which looks so tiny in the above panoramic shot.

Eine tolle Tour über den Furgg und den oberen Theodulgletscher in Zermatt mit der anschliessenden Besteigung des Breithorns. Die Tour wurde durch den Anbieter hoehenfiber.ch organisiert. Die Organisation hat bestens geklappt. Auch die Unterkunft in der Gandegghütte mit dem tollen Essen bleibt in bester Erinnerung
