Illustration for article titled Mountaineers Lit the Matterhorn to Celebrate 150 Years of Climbing

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]
