Matterhorn Sunrise Over The Gorner Glacier

Matterhorn

Sunrise warms the majestic Matterhorn (4,478 meters /14,692 ft) over the Gorner Glacier, the second-longest glacier in the Alps. This is the view that rewards you after completing the arduous trek over the glacier to the new Monte Rosa hut. I took this picture in 2010 after having made the trek to the hut with my wife and father.

  1. Good Gracious!! The Matterhorn is glowing like a volcano! I really love the contrast between the rounded glacier and the rugged mountains 🙂
