It almost looks as if you could climb the ridge on the right all the way to the top. Unfortunately, looks can be deceiving, the Matterhorn is one of the deadliest peaks in the Alps.

WI about 10years ago said: Inge, that is very interesting. I was thinking it would be Kilimanjaro, no?
Canada about 10years ago said: Ken, It is a close contest, but Mount Fuji in Japan is first.
WI about 10years ago said: Inge, what is the first most recognizable peak of our planet?

Canada about 10years ago said: One of the majestic giants and the second most recognizable peak of our planet. Its awesome beauty is well captured here.
Brasil about 10years ago said: Wonderful Matterhorn....You were in a spectacular place when you did this photo, Maks....Untouchable!
Australia about 10years ago said: I agree with Mira. :) These giants should not be trodden upon. But that is not the point. The point is the photo, which is lovely from this unusual angle. Did you climb it Maks?
India about 10years ago said: Deadly only for people. This mighty entity would rather stand undisturbed in its own glory. Beautiful picture.
