Very steep above the tree line and had many sections completely covered in snow (mid-May). Fantastic hike though with amazing Matterhorn and panoramic views.

Great views of the Matterhorn from Schwarzsee. Did this hike in October and encountered very little traffic. I started from Zermatt and walked to the trail head from the train station. Some paved trail/road for first mile or so. Wooded with views of nearby glaciers. Once above the treeline the Matterhorn becomes visible over the ridge.

One of the nicest hikes i've ever did, really amazing sights.

Great hike, really loved this one.

Great hike with a bit of adventure through the debris field. The sight from the summit is really great.

The Toûno mountain surprised me well, really great place to hike.

I really loved this hike, an amazing view after such a climb is breathtaking. Recommendation for everyone who's in the neighborhood. Best time is in summer when snow level is around or above 3000m. Last kilometer could be slippery when there is still some snow!

Very nice hike with many panoramic views. The lake itself is just one of the most beautiful lakes i've ever seen. From the summit Sorebois you get an amazing view over the valley, recommend it to everyone! At Cabane de Moiry the glacier looks so close. Really beautiful.

Great hike and good combination of the Bisse and adventurous paths and further on the impressive lake.

I really loved this hike; It takes you to two summits before entering a very silent path far away from civilization. I will sure do this one over ;-)

The Illhorn is a classic summit and easy to get to, this hike combines it with a more challenging summit a bit further: the Schwarzhorn.
