Beschrijving

 

The Swiss Alps are home to the highest and most spectacular mountains in Western Europe. This stunning guidebook describes each mountain area throughout Switzerland – the peaks, passes, valleys and bases – to help you identify the best destinations to plan your trip.
 
Questions such as ‘Where to walk, climb or ski?’, ‘What multi-day treks are available’ and ‘Where do they go?’, ‘Where are the mountain huts, what are their facilities, which peaks do they serve?’ And where are the most suitable valley bases?’ – all these and more are addressed in detail in this essential guidebook.
 
The Swiss Alps does not give detailed route directions but information is given about all the guides and maps available for every region.
 
The Swiss Alps by Kev Reynolds is the third book in Cicerone’s World Mountain Ranges series, which include The Pyrenees and Scotland.
 
descriptions of all the Swiss Alps, area-by-area from the Chablais Alps in the south west to the Silvretta in the north east
classic walks and climbs identified, alongside outlines of all the major hut-to-hut trekking routes
information on maps, guides and accommodation, pinpointing all the mountain huts in the area
 

This book sets out to redress the balance, to introduce those who have not yet found them to some of the unfamiliar and largely unsung mountains and valleys, while still giving due regard to the giants that dominate the landscape at Zermatt, Grindelwald or Pontresina. It’s a handy resource for the active hillwalker, trekker, climber and ski tourer; a guide and gazetteer to the peaks, passes and valleys, providing sufficient background information to help anyone planning a visit to make the most of their time there. Questions such as ‘Where to walk, climb or ski?’, ‘What multi-day treks are available and where do they go?’, ‘Where are the mountain huts, what are their facilities, which peaks do they serve?’, and ‘Where are the most suitable valley bases?’ – all these and more are addressed in detail.

This book does not give detailed route directions but information is given about all the guides and maps available for every region under review. The aim of this volume is not to lead step by step, but to inspire, to entertain and to inform; to show the first-time visitor – and those who have already discovered one or two of its districts – what the Swiss Alps have to offer. The emphasis is on activity; the intention to help the reader gain a quality experience with every visit. In truth the outdoor enthusiast is spoilt for choice, but armed with this guide, it should be possible to make that choice a better informed one.

Dozens of individual valleys are described, together with the mountains that wall them, with recommendations given for their finest walks, treks and climbs. Such recommendations are purely subjective readers may well take issue with some of the suggestions. That is just how it should be.
