Highlights
  • The Breithorn is a 4000-meter Alpine peak located close to the Matterhorn.
  • It is considered the most easily climbed 4,000 meter Alpine peak due to the Klein Matterhorn cable car which takes climbers to over 3,820 meters for a starting point.
  • The standard route (SSW flank) continues over a glacial plateau before climbing to the summit on a 35 degree snow slope.
