See that tiny spot in the mountains?





There is this place almost at the top of the Matterhorn, one of the highest mountains of the Swiss Alps, where I would absolutely love to go, since it’s one of the most spectacular (and exclusive) spots of the entire Alps
The place I’m talking about is the Solvayhütte, which is the highest hut owned by the Swiss Alpine Club. While almost all the other huts are supposed to be used by climbers as a shelter, the Solvayhütte can only be used in case of extreme emergencies

It is located at 13,133 ft (4,003 m) of altitude, and its location is one of the most spectacular things we’ve ever seen, and one of the most precarious as well
The sight from the Solvayhütte is so incredible that I would definitely love to go there. By helicopter

The Solvayhütte is that tiny point on the Matterhorn

I wonder how difficult it was to build a hut on that ridge
