Mountains IN ENGADIN ST. MORITZ
The South Eastern Alps, the location of the Upper Engadin valley, are majestic monuments thrust upwards millions of years ago by the meeting of continental plates. The best known peaks have generated numerous mountaineering stories - above all the Piz Bernina (4.049 m).
Their unique combination of narrow ridges, lofty peaks and iridescent blue mountain lakes is quite staggering. The massif around the Engadin mountain valley has an amazing number of highlights: icy glaciers, glimpses of the "Ballroom of the Alps" with its and three and four thousand metre high peaks or Engadin's lakes, a ribbon of silver pools stretching along the valley floor.
