    Gorner Schlucht

    by Pakistaniguy Written Oct 6, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gornerschlucht is an extraordinary natural canyon. It is very unconventional and exciting.
    There is a small path; parts are on ground, some are made out of wood including a bridge and stairs. Several turnings make it varied.

    Board with entry fees for Gorner Gorge.

    Zum See

    by sandysmith Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On a short afternoon stroll we took the cable-car the short distance form Zermatt - Furi (cos we're lazy) and walked to the tiny hamlet of Zum See. Just a handful of barns and a tiny restaurant and loads of Geraniums!

    On the trail

    Many trails just like this, off the beaten track away from the touristic crowds down in Zermatt's main street.
    This is some where above Furi, meandering around the little moutain hamlets.

    Shepards hut

    You will also see small huts that are probably used by the shepards in the area. What a beautiful area to be a sheep herder!

    Hommage to the mountain climbers

    by Skigirl Written Jan 25, 2003

    A walk through the cemetary in Zermatt is interesting as it pays hommage to those climbers that did not make it. A beautiful place for some outstanding photography especially in black and white.

    On the way back from Gornerschlucht one may see how steep and difficult the stairs were for my aunt, but it was easy for my friend.

    Mountain view

    See the Gletschers and the Mountains south of Zermatt. We took the Gornergratbahn to the Monta Rosa. The next day we explored the Gorner Gletscher and had a wonderful view at the BREITHORN mountains.
