Hike: Gornergrat, Zermatt

Visit the photo set Gornergrat Hike on Flickr.

As part of our recent trip to Switzerland with my sister and brother-in-law, we did a hike down from the Gornergrat (3100 m) back to Zermatt (1680 m). We had a great day for hiking, stopping at the Riffelalp Resort’s Ristorante “Al Bosco” for a nice lunch halfway down. We tied the “Aussichtsweg”, “Riffelseeweg”, “Mark Twain Weg” and “Riffelalpweg” trails together for a 13 km+ day.
