Matterhorn

The Matterhorn (German), Monte Cervino (Italian) or Mont Cervin (French), is a mountain in the Pennine Alps on the border between Switzerland and Italy. Its summit is 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high, making the Matterhorn one of the highest peaks in the Alps. The Matterhorn was the last great Alpine peak to be climbed and its first ascent, up the Hörnli ridge, marked the end of the golden age of alpinism. It was made in 1865 by a party led by Edward Whymper and ended tragically when four of its members fell to their deaths on the descent. To read more about the first ascent click here.
