"I was in Zermatt for paragliding. The view of Zermatt was awesome! I flow from 3000m to Zermatt, and I could take the picture with the Matterhorn “chocolate mountain” before getting back to the ground."
Ka Yeung Wong, Exchange student in Spring 2022, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (People's Republic of China)
