The Matterhorn is  with its nearly perfect symmetrical pyramidal peak, it defines what many consider a true mountain. It is both awe-inspiring and intimidating to even the most skilled mountaineers and has taken the lives of well over 500 climbers making it also one of the deadliest mountains to climb. It extends 14,692 ft (4,478m) above sea level and is one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe. It wasn’t conquered until 1865 when Edward Whymper and 6 other men beat out an Italian group of climbers to reach the summit. 

Precisely at this moment the Italian team was approximatively 400 meters below, still dealing with the most difficult parts of the Italian ridge. When seeing their rivals on the summit they gave up on their attempt and went back home. 4 of the 6 Whymper’s team members lost their lives on the descent. All but one (whose body was never found) are buried in the Zermatt churchyard. 

In more recent times, the Matterhorn was made popular by the projections of country flags to show support and unity during the COVID-19 Pandemic
