Matterhorn – Travel Photo of the Moment

The Travel Photo of the Moment is of the Matterhorn

The Matterhorn is a mountain located in the Pennine Alps on the border between Switzerland and Italy. At 14,692 feet, Matterhorn is one of the highest peaks in the Alps, but it has also garnered a grisly reputation as one of the deadliest peaks in the Alps. From 1865, when it was first climbed, to 1995, over 500 mountain climbers have perished on its slopes.
