    Höhbalmen Zermatt
    Description

    The Höhbalmen tour in Zermatt is little-known among mountain bikers. The view of the Matterhorn is almost even more impressive than on the Gorner ridge descent.

    In Zermatt, ride uphill through the Winkelmatten on the mountain lane until reaching Furi, then continue over the Zmuttbach river in the direction of the Zmutt Glacier. From there, take the steep singletrail uphill in the direction of the Höhbalmen plateau. Many people choose to push their bikes on this stretch, but skilled mountain bikers can ride up almost the entire ascent. The ridgeway over the Höhbalmen is among the best in the world. It is worthwhile to take the time to stop and marvel at the Matterhorn. It is particularly impressive from this perspective. After the Höhbalmen, the steep descent begins toward the Trift lodge, where a very technical singletrail leads along the Triftbach river back to Zermatt. This rough, high-alpine descent is only recommended for very good mountain bikers.
