Zermatt, Gornergrat 3090m/10,160ft - Summer panorama

This is the magic view which greats summer visitors to the area of Gornergrat, although photography cannot do the awesome scale and beauty of these mountains justice. The view from Gornergrat is truly one of the most magnificent mountain panoramas in the world. Gornergrat is easily accessible from Zermatt in 45 minutes in a spectacular mountain train ride. If the views aren't enough, superb walks begin from here and terrific ski runs in winter. Note the spectacular Gorner glacier flowing along the valley floor. It is an enormous mass of ice and snow - and the second longest glacier in Europe.
