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