The Matterhorn (also known as Monte Cervino in Italian or Mont Cervin in French) is probably the most iconic mountain in the Alps; the typical pyramid shape of the Matterhorn summit is familiar even to those who don’t have any mountaineering background. This 4478m high mountain is located in the Swiss alpine region of Zermatt in the Pennine Alps on the border between two countries, Italy and Switzerland. 

This extraordinary mountain is famous not only for its place in mountaineering history, but also for its striking shape and the beautifully exposed climbing it offers. The Matterhorn remained for a long time the unclimbed dream summit of all alpinists; its technical difficulty combined with the impressive appearance of the steep walls made all the early climbers turn back. It was not until 14 July 1865 when a team led by British mountaineer Edward Whymper succeeded to reach the summit. They succeeded by a route which is today the normal route, known as the Hörnli ridge. The first Matterhorn summit came at a terrible price; four of the team climbers - Douglas Hadow, Michel Croz, Lord Francis Douglas and Charles Hudson - fell tragically to their deaths on the descent. Even today, Matterhorn is a very respected mountain by all alpinists. Climbing the Matterhorn requires good levels of fitness, climbing experience and determination.
