For more than 500 years, the hamlet of Zmutt has stood on a small rise at an altitude of 1,936 m, among lush alpine pastures. The traditional wooden houses, closely huddled together, tell of a long history.
Zmutt is easy to reach along a gentle footpath from Zermatt. About 20 dark wooden houses radiate tranquillity and the peace of the solitary mountains. The small houses are closely huddled, as if they wanted to protect each other from the whims of nature.
