  • The upside down Matterhorn on Lake Rivel is beautiful. You can take a beautiful picture. There was not one cloud, and it looked beautiful though it was not able to be said. I am satisfied. I want you to visit because it is a trouble.

  • I was there in July, without a crowd... A place like a different fairy tale. You can get there by an exclusive train, enter the legs, or indirectly... and a walk. It is worth marching, the route to the passage for 8 years.

  • Sad to see a very dried and further drying but beautiful lake. Waited a few hours for the wind to stop so we could get clear photos of Matterhorn. It was lovely and we trekked downwards to one of the train stops. It was a great walk from here.
  • Miracle place and nice landscape. During summer, the weather was very warm and dry. The lake had small water.
