Aerial view of Matterhorn / Cervino summit, Switzerland / Italy. LUFTAUFNAHME, Schweiz.

The isolated summit of Matterhorn / Cervino (elevation: 4478m), has a distinctive ridge which separates Italy (left of ridge) from Switzerland. This 100-meter-long very aerial east-west ridge also straddles the watershed between the Po basin in Italy and the Rhône basin in Switzerland, then France. Its summit was reached for the first time in 1865 by a party of seven led by Edward Whymper. This is a difficult and dangerous climb, four people fell to their deaths in that historic first ascent, and an estimated five hundred people have died ever since. Zermatt, Canton of Valais, Switzerland / Breuil-Cervinia, Aosta Valley, Italy.
