Itinerary description

One of the most scenic hikes in Zermatt. Take the funicular from Zermatt to Sunnegga (about 5 min trip, 25 CHF return ticket). From Sunnegga hike to the next cable station Blauherd. If you want to skip this part, you can take the cable car to Blauherd and start the hike from there. From Blauherd, starts the proper five lakes trail (5-seenweg signs). The lakes trail is fantastic with a mix of dirt roads and footpaths. The first lake (Stellisee) is the most visited, and most photos of a lake with Matterhorn in the background are taken here. The 2nd lake (Grindjisee) is nicely found on the way down the valley, with trees all around. Grünsee (the 3rd lake) is reached after a moderate ascent and on a sunny day is a great spot for a swim. The trail between 3rd and 4th Lake (Mosjesee) goes down to the valley and the most beautiful part of the trail. After crossing a wooden bridge, you will reach Mosjesee. From here, you will start your final ascent to the starting point. The 5th lake (Leisee) is found just before reaching Sunnegga. A cabinet shuttle can take you up to Sunnegga for free.
