How High Can a Hut Go? - Solvay Hut
Well, here's another place I'm never going to get to. Mostly because I can't stand being cold, and I can barely climb a ladder. But if I were an adventurous mountaineer, I would definitely put the Solvay Hut at the top of my list of places to visit.
Located on a ridge of the Matterhorn in Switzerland, the hut was built more than a hundred years ago as an emergency shelter for mountain climbers. It earns the distinction of being the highest and, no doubt, most precariously located hut of the Matterhorn. Looks like a fantastic place to hang out, check your carabiners and snack on your gorp.
