The glaciers in the Engadin

In the Engadin, 173 glaciers cover an area of 40 square kilometres (15 square miles) ‒ six percent of the Upper Engadin ‒ clustered around the highest peaks in the eastern Alps. Undisputedly ranking in first place is the Morteratsch Glacier, at around seven kilometres (4.3 miles) the longest in the Engadin. About 160 years ago, during the Little Ice Age, it reached almost to where Morteratsch railway station stands today. Yet other glaciers in the region, bearing such melodious names as Roseg, Tschierva, Sella and Pers, offer an equally imposing natural spectacle.
