The 5-Lakes-Hike of Zermatt is one of the Must-Dos to do in Summer in Switzerland. You get to experience the Stellisee, Grindjisee, Grünsee, Moosjisee and Leisee where most of them have a view of the impressive Matterhorn. How to get there: Take the Sunnegga Cable Car up to Sunnegga. Then you transfer and go even higher to Blauherd. Here the trail starts and Stellisee is the first one which is also in my opinion the best one. Its the lake showing in the first shot. After the other lakes are following and its worth it to take the full hike. After you passed all the lakes, you arrive back at Sunnegga and go back down. The total time is 2.5 hours without stops. Price: The return ticket is 36.50chf without a reduction or 18.50chf with the half fare/swiss travel pass.
