>> Kindly advise a visit to St. Moritz from Zermatt via Glacier express is a better option in late September.
A better option than what?
>> Since I will reach there (St. Moritz) by 3:30 pm and next day early morning back to Zurich for my flight(I have afternoon flight).
I can't see any trains in the timetable that arrive in St. Moritz from Zermatt around 3:30 pm. The first Glacier Express of the day arrives at 15:58, having left St. Moritz at 7:52.
>> Is it worth paying a visit to St. Moritz in summers?
That's a personal choice. I would say yes. The Glacier Express is a wonderful train trip in itself, and St. Moritz is a pretty town. It would be even better if you could stay there two nights and spend the intervening day doing a hike or a mountain visit or two. I would rather spend extra time in St. Moritz and less time in Zürich, which is the least interesting place on your itinerary (unless you have a specific reason for having to visit Zürich).
>> Or shall I completely skip the idea and stay in Zermatt and explore Brig, Visp and other nearby areas.
On such a short trip, I would definitely not spend any time exploring Brig or Visp. If you are spending extra time in Zermatt, there is plenty to do there, or you could do a day trip to Saas-Fee.
>> I am skeptical about St. Moritz, as I do wish to go there and enjoy the other extreme corner of Switzerland but do I have time-based on above route or any other shortest route available to go to St. Moritz from Zermatt?
If you are going to St. Moritz from Zermatt, I would not go there by any other route than the Glacier Express, as this is by far the most scenic. It takes about 8 hours. The most time you would save by taking other routes is less than an hour and a half, and the reason for that is that you will spend quite a bit of time in long tunnels. Even when not in tunnels, the scenery cannot match that of the Glacier Express route.
