Cinematic hyperlapse video of the Matterhorn (Cervino) on the Italian side, in Valle d'Aosta, above the ski resort of Cervinia, in Valtournenche. The Matterhorn is a mountain of the Alps, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy. It is a large, near-symmetric pyramidal peak in the extended Monte Rosa area of the Pennine Alps, whose summit is 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high, making it one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe.[note 3] The four steep faces, rising above the surrounding glaciers, face the four compass points and are split by the Hörnli, Furggen, Leone/Lion, and Zmutt ridges. The mountain overlooks the Swiss town of Zermatt, in the canton of Valais, to the north-east and the Italian town of Breuil-Cervinia in the Aosta Valley to the south. Just east of the Matterhorn is Theodul Pass, the main passage between the two valleys on its north and south sides, and a trade route since the Roman Era.  Out of all of the mountains that make up the Alps, the Matterhorn is probably the best known. Meaning “peak in the meadows” in German, the nearly 15,000-foot-tall mountain straddles the Swiss-Italian border and has long been a bucket list destination for climbers. Taller peaks like Mount Everest and K2 may overshadow it in terms of height, but the Matterhorn’s seemingly eternal pop-culture presence makes it easily recognizable to people around the world.  INTERESTING FACTS:  The first ascent to the summit ended in tragedy! On July 14, 1865, a seven-member team of climbers made the first ascent to the top of the Matterhorn using ropes woven out of manila hemp, but only three lived to tell about it. As the group descended using the Hörnligrat route (the mountain’s shoulder), one of the climbers slipped pulling three others down with him. As the climbers above anchored themselvs to absorb the shock on the lifeline, the rope snapped between the fourth and fifth man, and Michel Croz, Rev. Charles Hudson, Douglas Hadow and Lord Francis Douglas fell to their deaths. Douglas' body was never found. Over the years, an estimated 500 people have died attempting to climb the Matterhorn, and a metal cross at the peak commemorates those who lost their lives on the mountain. The Matterhorn Museum Zermatlantis, located in the resort town of Zermatt below the peak, currently has an exhibit focused on that fateful first ascent. Visitors can see the section of broken rope displayed behind glass on a velvet pillow.  Each face of the peak points toward one of the cardinal directions! The Matterhorn formed millions of years ago when several land masses slammed into one another, forcing the ground upward. Geologists have determined that the hard gneiss rock on top of the mountain came from the African continental plate as it smashed into the Laurasian, or European plate. Hence, the mountain could technically be considered African. The resulting pyramid-shaped peak has four distinct sides that align with the cardinal directions: north, south, east and west. The north side faces Zermatt Valley and the east overlooks Gornergrat Ridge, both in Switzerland, while the south face points toward the Italian town of Brueil-Cervinia and the western side overlooks the Swiss-Italian border.  Matterhorn: the Swiss Toblerone Chocolate Mountain Did you know the toblerone chocolate was designed after the shape of the Matterhorn? Have a close look at the logo on the toblerone chocolate bar wrapper and you might see a striking resemblance with the mighty matterhorn…..This makes the Matterhorn only mountain in the world that was designed after a bar of chocolate….or was it the other way around!? =)  On the Italian side you can find the ski resort of Cervinia, which lies at 2,006 m (6,581 ft) above sea level, in a valley surrounded by high, glaciated mountains and the sheer rock face of the Jumeaux. It shares a ski area with Zermatt in Switzerland, connected through the Plateau Rosa glacier (3,500 m [11,500 ft]). Some of the runs are very long, the longest is Ventina (nr. 7), which stretches 22 km (14 mi) from the Testa Grigia down to Cervinia in Italy. The ski season in Cervinia lasts not only 6 months in winter but also in summer on the glacier Plateau Rosa.

I thought it looked better than the M2P produces.

Although the MP2 makes amazing videos and a lot of other things the I2 does not do. They are both great machines
