Overview


This is the third edition of this guide, by one of Britain's leading guidebook writers, to some of Switzerland's Valais region's finest mountain walking. The 120 routes include walks round the Matterhorn and Zermatt, Saas Fee and many quieter areas. The Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Zinarothorn, Ober Gabelhorn, Dent Blanche, Weisshorn, Bietschhorn, Grand Combin - these are some of the most dramatic mountains in Europe. Here they form a backdrop to a series of routes that should answer the dreams of any keen mountain walker. Best-known, perhaps, for the resorts of Zermatt and Saas Fee, the Valais district of Switzerland is also the location of the Lötschental and Turtmanntal, the Valleys of d'Annivers, Hãrens, Bagnes and Ferret - valleys in which there are numerous alp hamlets nestling among the pastures. There are also dozens of small lakes, the longest glacier in the Alps, pristine snowfields, meadows full of flowers, marmots that will eat out of your hand, and no shortage of accommodation, from low-cost dormitories and campsites to the grandest of hotels.
