Here’s the continuation of our 2-day trip at Zermatt! After a tiring hike the previous day, we went for a more relaxing pace the next day, and head up to the highest cable car station in Europe – Matterhorn Glacier Paradise.
Matterhorn Glacier Paradise
The Matterhorn Glacier Paradise valley station was a little bit far from our accommodation, so we took a public bus to the station. There, we spotted huge groups of travellers embarking on their hikes and walking to the station to take the gondola. There are a few intermediate stops during the ride, and I advise you to use the public toilets at Trockener Steg because it is the last intermediate stop and the toilets at Matterhorn Glacier Paradise are chargeable at CHF 2. After using the public toilets at Trockener Steg, we changed to a 60-seater cable car up to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. The total journey took almost 1 hour, but brought us up from 1,640 metres above sea level (MASL) to 3,883 MASL.
Now that we had reached Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, it’s time to explore the area!
