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.
How did they get all the materials up there?
I was thinking the same….
Carefully, and with great difficulty.
Possibly with a helicopter?
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.
that a good question
Thats awesome, looks like it'd be fun to stay in, bitch to get up to though…
I just gave you a thumbs up. Savor it buddy.
i am quite sure it's gone
Chive! Y u no look inside!
Really? Nobody thought to photograph what it looks like inside?
Thats so you cant loot the place while everyone is away.
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
Dude! What if u hit someone with ur shit who is just climbing up the mountain?!?
Dropping the deuce.

We usually build those hut by carrying the stuff with helicopters.. But for the oldest one, they had to carry the stuff on their back !
