In the Pennine Alps, there is one of the most famous peaks in the world - the Matterhorn (4478 m above sea level), one of the symbols of Switzerland.

An excerpt from the article 45 facts about Switzerland

It is the sixth-highest independent Alpine peak, located on the border between Switzerland and Italy, in the Matterhorn massif. Its silhouette is often identified with the symbol of mountains. Its northern wall is 1100 m high and is one of the highest, extremely steep walls in the Alps and Europe. Together with the Walker Pillar on the Grandes Jorasses (a ridge in the main ridge of the Mont Blanc massif) and the northern face of the Eiger (a peak in the Bernese Alps), it forms the so-called Alpine Triptych - a dream destination for alpinists from all over the world. The Matterhorn is one of the most recently conquered Alpine peaks, not so much because of its technical difficulties as because of its intimidating appearance.
