Climbers “painted” the beautiful Matterhorn with Red Colors to celebrate the special anniversary. A group of trained climbers left Red beacons along the route of the famous climb, which is one of the highest mountains in the Alps Switzerland and as nightfall came the imposing mountain came alive with color. The event was organized by clothing brand Mammuth to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the first explorers to scale the epic mountain.

This massive cragged rock tooth standing alone on the horizon in a sea of clouds has for decades been an electromagnet for mountaineers, and has claimed the lives of 450. n 14 July 1865, British climber Edward Whymper reached the peak of the Matterhorn together with his rope team, but lost four climbers during the descent. Therefore 6 years later, on 22 July 1871, Englishwoman Lucy Walker became the first woman to climb the Matterhorn wearing a long flannel skirt as was suitable for a Victorian lady. Her ascent was seen as a jewel in the crown of female mountaineering.
