After three years of dreaming and preparing, I FINALLY summited the Matterhorn – the mountain of mountains, one of the most iconic peaks in Europe and a mountain that is on the list of any mountaineer.

First and foremost, special thanks to Gauthier Poncelet, Explore-Share, Martis Elis, and Peakshunters for making this dream come true! If you are looking to go with a mountain guide (highly recommended), have a look at the fabulous platform, Explore-Share. I have used this platform multiple times over the years, and this is where I also found, with a recommendation from Gauthier (the founder of Explore-Share), my guide for this trip, Elis.

How to get to Zermatt:

Note that Zermatt is a car-free town. You can leave your car at the nearest town, Täsch, and take a train from there to Zermatt. Trains run consistently every 20 minutes from 05:55 to 21:55. The train ride itself takes about 12 minutes. You can find more info about the train here:

I parked my car at the parking lot of Matterhorn Parking. There are also two campgrounds you could use to park your car and stay overnight:

• Camping Attermenzen
• Camping Alphubel

If for some reason you do not want to take the train, you could also take a taxi from Tasch to Zermatt. Or you could hike from Tasch to Zermatt, which takes roughly an hour.

I would recommend you have a read through the following post from the official website of the town of Zermatt to receive more info on how to get to Zermatt by train, plane, bus, etc.
