An Alpine Glacier

DSCF8230

This railroad is located at the foot of the Morteratschgletscher, a glacier in the Bernina Alps in

Switzerland.  If you are going to Italy from Switzerland through Passo del Bernina, make sure you

stop at a lookout area just beside the main highway in Upper Engadin to see a superb view of the

glacier. This glacier has a length of about 7 km and is a typical example of a large valley glacier that

is losing a huge percentage of ice volume due to the climatic warming.

Aside from the glacier, Engadin is famous for its sunny climate and beautiful landscapes of the

Bernina Range where the highest peaks of Eastern Alps are located.  It is also a good place for outdoor

activities such as hiking and cycling.
