High altitude panoramic ridge walk


The finest viewing platform in Zermatt is surely situated on the 3,414-metre Stockhorn. Encircled by every four-thousand-metre peak and the glaciers of Zermatt, the viewing platform can only be reached via a wonderfully scenic ridge walk.
The most beautiful lakes – which are also the most remote – are located in the ‘lost valley’, and each of the three lakes has a different colour. You can reach both destinations on our exclusive two-day hike – and on both days, you are guaranteed to be alone and far from the mass of tourists, even in high season.

The tour is especially suitable for sure-footed hikers in search of uniquely fascinating landscapes.
Accommodation is avilable at the ze Seewjinu Mountain Lodge by Lake Grünsee at an altitude of 2,300 metres.

Duration: 2 days
Number of participants in a group: maximum of 8 people

Day 1

Early in the morning, take the first rack-and-pinion railway to the Gornergrat ridge.
Surrounded by 30-plus four-thousand-metre peaks, cross the Hohtälligrat ridge to the uniquely panoramic viewing platform situated on the Stockhorn, 3,421 metres above sea level.
Descend via the Hohtälli mountain and the Weg der Stille (‘path of silence’) to Lake Grünsee.
Those wishing to cool off after their hike can immerse themselves in the invigorating waters of Lake Grünsee.
Next, enjoy an aperitif on the terrace of the ze Seewjinu lodge before heading to your room.
Enjoy the peace and quiet, then savour a fine evening meal as Kurt Lauber, mountain guide and manager of the lodge, regales guests with tales of the «good old days».
Total: 4.5 to 5 hours (T3)

Day 2
After breakfast, the group follows a trail to the ‘hidden valley’ before continuing up across open terrain to three mountain lakes set amid a stunning untamed landscape.
Here, far from any sign of civilisation, nature displays its full variety, presenting photo opportunities for hikers.

Leaving from and returning to the ze Seewjinu Mountain Lodge
