Europe :: Switzerland
The Matterhorn is a pyramidal mountain on the border between Switzerland and Italy. Its summit is 4,478 m (14,692 ft) high, making it one of the highest, most famous, and deadliest peaks in the Alps. The steep faces, oriented to each compass point, cause regular avalanches; the snow that builds up around the base forms glaciers. Mountains around the world with similar profiles frequently earn "Matterhorn" as a nickname because of the mountain's iconic shape.
