Photographer's Note

from the top of the Eggishorn at an altitude of 3000m (9000 feet) one has a marvelous sight over the most famous Swiss mountain, the Matterhorn. This iconic moutain is 4478m high (14500 feet) and is flanked here by the mighty Weisshorn (White horn) witch in itself is 4506m high.
The Matterhorn is actually, even if we Swiss take it as our national mountain, only half in Switzerland. The other half is already in Italy.
The famous Toblerone chocolate is in its triangular form inspired by the Matterhorn.
