If beauty and elegance of a mountain have a name, it is Weisshorn. When entering the Matter Tal we hardly notice this skywards reaching three faced pyramid. Only when you reach Randa – this lovely village next to famous Zermatt – you can no longer ignore the stunning white north face reaching up to the 4506 m high summit – Switzerland’s second highest peak completely on Swiss territory. Even when bending your head way back, it is hard to spot the summit, simply because of the enormous elevation difference between the valley and the peak.
