The lake path around Zermatt with views of the Matterhorn is very popular. You can help yourself with the underground cable car to Sunnegg, where there is a beautiful view of this mountain and now the lakes Leisee, Mosjesee, Grindjisee and Stellisee are waiting and back. It's a beautiful day trip

Mosjesee and Matterhorn

It is quite difficult to photograph this mountain. It is often shrouded in clouds, but the best time is morning or evening

Beautiful valley

The beautiful valley is just a pity for the clouds that cover the Matterhorn

Tufteren

Classic Swiss dwelling. As I wrote in previous articles, it is easy to get off the trail, thanks to the markings, so we did well here on the 7th day, when I made a bad decision and we walked 7 km.
