Matterhorn is one of the most famous peaks in the world. It forms an almost perfect pyramid high 4,478m. Being one of the mountains in the Pennine Alps on the border betweenSwitzerland and Italy, it is covered with snow most of the year. The Matterhorn was one of the last great Alpine peaks to be climbed. Still today it is challenging climbers to prove themselves against his peak.

 

Several climbers lost their lives trying to climb it from fatigue, frost bite and extreme weather. To help the distress climbers, the Swiss Alpine Club built the Solvay Hut the highest hut on the Matterhorn at 4,003 meters (13,133 ft).
