About this book

The splendid scenery of the Pennine Alps, with such peaks as the Matterhorn, Dent Blanche, and Mont Rosa, providing a perfect background.

'The great affection which is penned so effectively into this walking guide to one mountain district ... reveals the work of a specialist.' (Van Greaves, High) 'Another Cicerone Press walking guide from the tried and trusted Kev Reynolds stable. The format is familiar, user friendly and crammed with useful and essential information about the geography, places to stay, how to get there and of course 120 route descriptions in the eleven areas that make up the Valais region of Switzerland. ... Mouth watering colour photos illustrate the descriptions.' (Richard Ayres, The Leader)
