A resource guide to every mountain area in the Swiss Alps. A handy reference book for walkers, long distance trekkers, climbers and ski mountaineers. Access, accommodation and facilities in the valley bases and full information about Swiss mountain huts is included to help you make the most out of a trip there.
 
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. Having said that, there is probably sufficient information provided to undertake most of the walks and treks mentioned (given that you also have the correct maps), however there is certainly not enough information to do any of the climbs mentioned unless you are very adventurous and a few words about a particular ridge and a grade is sufficient for you.
