See the sun rice from the summit of Matterhorn - 360 degree Panorama.
Matterhorn is with a height of 4478 meters one of the highest mountains in Europe.

Even if Matterhorn in the main season is climbed sometimes by 100 people a day it can be dangerous which was seen only a couple of weeks ago when an Australian climber died on the mountain.

A couple of weeks ago Matthias Taugwalder and mountain guide Gianni Mazzone who also is a direct descendant of Peter Taugwalder, climbed Matterhorn.

During the climb Matthias made 360 degree panoramas which makes it possible for you to experince a virtual reality climb of Matterhorn for the first time.

To give you an extra experience, the climb up to the summit which takes 4-5 hours was made during the night so that he could get a panorama during the sun rice.

Matthias Taugwalder is from a family of mountainguides who has assisted climbers for 150 years.

Peter Taugwalder his great great great grandfather, was the mountainguide who together with his son acompanied Edward Whymper at the first ascent on July 14 th, 1865. On the descent there was an accident where 4 of the 7 crew members died. Only Whymper and the two Taugwalders survived.
