The Stellisee (2,537 m) is among the most famous of Zermatt’s lakes. The sight of the Matterhorn reflected on its mirror-like surface is breathtakingly beautiful, and is made for magnificent photographs. The panoramic views of towering peaks, well over 4,000 m high, are among the most dramatic in the Zermatt region. The lake is a 20-minute walk from the Blauherd summit station. At sunrise and sunset, especially, this is a particularly romantic spot. Cotton grass grows along the lakeshore, providing splashes of white among the green-brown hues of the meadows.
