A hut built in the clouds (8 Photos)

The Solvay Hut is located 4,003 meters up on the Matterhorn’s ridge in Zermatt, Switzerland. It houses up to 10 climbers and is managed by the Swiss Alpine Club. It looks like a bat-shit crazy time if you ask me.

      Carefully, and with great difficulty.

      • Sjaak

        Possibly with a helicopter?

        • _ducu_

          not likely, looks like a windy place.

          Most probably they carried everything up the mountain, i've seen a bigger lodge that was built with volunteers carrying materials on foot.

      There are actually companies that pay teams of specialized builders to constructs bridges and whatnot in the middle of nowhere with minimal environmental impact. They backpack everything they need in. I kid you not. So I'd imagine a team like that did it? But this is a bit extreme.

    These are really common in the alps and other mountain areas. I slept in a few of them and it's an amazing experience. In one of them, the toilet was a cabin hanging over the cliff. I was literally shitting on the clouds 🙂
