    Beautiful hike with amazing views of Alps and Mer de Grace. Gave 4 stars versus 5 due to tons of people going in both directions. Took cable car up and hiked down. Please note that it took approx 1.5 hours to get up the cable car due to the ticketing process and wait times. Then tons of people got off at the same time. We fought the crowds for the first 1.5 hours and then it thinned out. Hikers must be sure to check out the times of the cable cars and/or trains to make this hike work within their schedule. Hike down to Mer de Grace was moderate in difficulty. Great views of the valley too

    Did this hike in completed fog so didn't see a think except the zillions of people starting out at the same time from the ride up from Zermatt to Blauherd.. If you want solitude, don't do this hike.

    Nice little hike up the side of the mountain. Shop/hotel owner was very kind once we got the the hotel. Great views of the city of Zermatt. Very few people. Would recommend going a bit farther on trail to see even more views of the mountain and river with flowing water. Bridge has been fixed so no worries.

    Amazing. Made it to the shelter and the fog settled in. Beautiful views and well groomed trail. The meadows were amazing with flowers in bloom. Saw Marmots but no bears. Last part of trail we slagging through some snow but trail well marked. Shelter was very cool and we stopped the hike there as fog was too thick to see much beyond. Blue ice glaciers were massive and very picturesque. Saw some people hiking on Exit Glacier which was cool to see. Not too many people. Would recommend anytime.

    Beautiful hike on Sept 24th with great sunny sky. Hiked clockwise with stunning views of the aqua blue lake and rocky snowy peaks all around. After tracking past the lake the hike took us past rocky river bed until we started the ascent. Wonderful views of the waterfall towards the left. Once we started on the second part of triangle the views were spectacular and path took us past rocky cliffs. Saw about a dozen mountain goats grazing. Once past the peak on the third leg of the hike the switchbacks down were never ending...but beautiful. We have hiked all over the US and Canada and this hike was in our top three ever. Would do again.
