Zermatt City Travel Guide - Tourist Information

Destination Travel Guide - Tourist Information
It was Easter weekend in 1998. I was travelling in Swiss with couple of friends and we were staying in a beautiful Youth Hostel (YHA). We were planning to go to Klein Matterhorn by the cable car. (It’s a famous peak near Zermatt).

There is a local office in Zermatt which shows the latest snow status on top of the peak. There are a few live cameras which make the latest pictures available at the base office. Depending on the conditions they advice you whether to go or not. Unfortunately for us the weather turned bad with very less visibility so the cable car was not running. Being the last day in Zermatt we were quite disappointed and started cursing the weather in an Indian language – Hindi. We naively had assumed that no one understood what we were talking.

Suddenly a Swiss gentleman stopped and asked in fluent Hindi – ‘Aap kounse shahar se aye hai?’ (Which city have you come from?). Our first reaction was complete silence. Then as we spoke more we realised the secret of his fluent Hindi.

His dad was a resident of Hrishikesh (a famous retreat for meditation etc. in the Himalayas) and this gentlemen had stayed there with his father for a few years as a kid.
Lesson Learnt: When you are in Zermatt, don’t use Hindi for selective words. The gentleman may still be around.

Coming back to Travel info on Zermatt, it’s a nice place to visit which had snow even in April, secondly you can visit Kleine Matternhorn which is the highest point in the Zermatt – Cervinia ski area and the end point of the highest cable car in Europe. The peak is at 3883m with the cable car terminal at 3820m.
