Matterhorn, The Toblerone Mountain

Share


I'm sure you all know the famous triangular shape chocolate, the Switzerland chocolate, Toblerone. Well, that shape doesn't come from nothing; it's actually represented the mountain that you can see also on the logo, the Matterhorn.




I was lucky enough to be able to visit the beautiful town where I can see one of the most photographed mountains in the world from almost every side of the town. Zermatt in Switzerland is a gateway to Matterhorn, even though this mountain is "shared" between Switzerland and Italy (it called Monte Cervino in Italy).


When the sky is clear, you can see Matterhorn from many different spots in Zermatt
Matterhorn will capture your eyes instantly. Well, lets hope that the sky is clear so you can see this beautiful huge mountain at the height of 4.478 meters above the sea level.



This is a very nice option to get on top: gondola!
Long time ago only a few can see this mountain from a near spot to get the great view of Matterhorn and the glacier around it. But thanks to tourism industry, Zermatt is a city where tourist flocks and surely Switzerland gave a better and nice option for people who want to see Matterhorn from a proper distance.



Last stop before taking the bigger gondola to get to the glacier paradise

The viewing point at 3.883 meters above the sea level
I only have to take a gondola ride to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, and climb only a few stairs to get to the viewing platform at 3.883 meters above sea level. Nice and easy, but the view is beyond nice, it's surely sweeter than Toblerone. I can't even compare the pleasure of having a sweet chocolate with seeing this. Matterhorn is just awesome.

@marischkaprue - few years back when she climbed a mountain, she brought a lot of chocolates.

NOTES:
  • Thanks to Qatar Airways for the nice experience. I took a Qatar Airways flight from Jakarta to Zurich (via Doha). 
  • From Zurich you only have to take a train to get to Zermatt. Easy breezy :)
Visit Switzerland with these super awesome people, thanks for the fun days! :)
