Zermatt is known for its snow, it has snow around the year, being on the top of the world doesn’t help either. But this is not completely true, now. With all the snow, you get lush greens as well.

It’s a breath-taking sight, and becomes even more so when viewed during sun-rise. The view will stay with you for a life-time.
Where there are snowy mountains, beautiful and lush green meadows make for a stunning contrast. The meadows in the Zermatt are famous for their hikes. Take out your trekking shoes and get ready for a hike through the beautiful and wide meadows. Walk down the Findeln and have a lovely lunch at the Findelhof restaurant. Lovely. Or try a walk from Furi to Zermatt, the view is breath-taking with a gorge and a river flowing down from the glaciers.
If you happen to visit Zermatt during the summers, do not worry. There is a slope for skiing in the glaciers even then. Skiing down some slopes may even lead you down to Italy. Amazing, isn’t it?
