The Matterhorn is one of the highest peaks in the Alps, and its successful ascent in 1865 marked the end of the Golden Age of mountain climbing. This year, a team of daring mountaineers scaled the rocky peak to light it up as a tribute to the men who first conquered its peak. What a view.

Swiss outdoor gear maker Mammut came up with the task to celebrate the anniversary of the first climb. The result was a stunning visual that perfectly marries the beauty of nature and the accomplishment of humankind. It's simply breathtaking. [Mammut via GearJunkie]
