View from Hohtälli

Here’s a 270-degree panorama from the Hohtälli mountain (3,273 m) in the Swiss Alps, taken during a hike two days ago. The peak just right of the center is the Matterhorn (4,478 m). Down and to its left, almost dead center in the picture, is the Gornergrat station (3,130 m), the terminus for the rack railway from Zermatt. Located next to the station is a former astronomical observatory housing an infrared and a sub-millimetre telescope.
