Oberrothorn Zurich Switzerland
Gornergrat, Matterhorn, Zermatt

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.
