About this book

The Swiss Alps are home to the highest and most spectacular mountains in Western Europe, beloved not only of mountaineers, from the earliest days of alpinism to the present day, but also those content simply to gaze and wonder. This unique resource for the climber, walker, trekker and ski mountaineer, the latest volume in Cicerone's World Mountain Ranges series, describes each mountain area throughout Switzerland--the peaks, passes, valleys and bases--to help readers identify the best destinations for their chosen mountain activity. Lavishly illustrated throughout, and with scores of expertly drawn maps, this is the essential guide for all active visitors to one of Europe's most mountainous, and beautiful, countries. Includes#descriptions of all the Swiss Alps, area-by-area from the Chablais Alps in the south west to the Silvretta in the north east, with classic walks and climbs identified, alongside outlines of all the major hut-to-hut trekking routes. Full information on maps, guides and accommodation is provided, pinpointing all the mountain huts in the area.
