A great and eventful tour with a world-class panorama above Zermatt.
This tour is one of the highlights in Zermatt. The version described here is a real circular hike from the Sunnegga Station, which you reach by funicular. The first part of the loop is the ascent über the Murmelweg, which describes the marmots with stations and illustrations. You can save yourself the climb if you do the official 5-lake tour and take the cable car one stop further up. The rest of this round tour also takes us up to Fluhalp, a mountain hut with good food and even better views. The loop passes a total of 5 lakes, some of which reflect the Matterhorn.
