VIDEO HIKING: Fünf Seenweg/ Five Lakes Walk , Switzerland (English Subtitle)


The emblematic symbol of the Alps challenges us again. Right from the Täsch village, the train takes us to Zermatt Resort, and hereafter, Zermatt – Sunnega Express carries us through the heart of the mountain, at an altitude of 2288 meters altitude. Being much more than a simple terrace with stunning views toward Matterhorn, Sunnega represents an important startup-point for many hiking trails in this area. Our picked hike starts exactly from Blauherd, a higher point we reach by cable-car. The Five Lakes Walk is unfolding ahead. Is quite possible to come to know the “Black-neck” goats, species which originates from this mountains. The path is easy to walk, that’s why we will rarely be keeping our eyes down, instead, we look for the heights of the mountain which claims to be the most photographed mountain all over the world. Stelisse Lake is our first destination. The path goes along the border of the lake, drawing us near to Matterhorn. The following bifurcation unveils the next attraction: Grindijsee Lake. Matterhorn, Mont Cervin in French or Monte Cervino in Italian, is certainly the world’s most photographed mountain. It is popular among photographers and climbers alike, for its unique pyramidal shape. The main reason for we are standing beside the borders of Grindjisee Lake, is the reflection of the summit to the crystalline waters. Something apart, belonging to the Autumn, is giving in color to our entire journey. The proximity of Grundsee Lake ( translated as Green Lake), represents a challenge for geologists and botanists alike. They will find here attractive rocks and abundant Flora. The entire landscape is augmented by the dominance of the 4.000 meters height summits. Descending to the forth lake, the path is dancing through the larches, impregnated with the colors of this beautiful beginning of October. Mojisee is an artificial reservoir. What is special about this reservoir is the water’s unique hues, determined by the sediments from it. Here are the borders of Leisee Lake. We’ve just came back to Sunnega. Up to this point, even we’ve walked for 9.3 kilometers, we feel fresh for our last descent to Zermatt Resort. Fact: the camera lens cannot shoot anything else beside Matterhorn, the sixth highest mountain from the Alps. This was a beautiful day. We’ve tasted a bit of what Switzerland promises to all its tourists: absolute satisfaction. Today is long gone. But don’t forget: tomorrow, Switzerland will become your challenge, too!
