The glaciers in the Engadin
The Engadin is a landscape “on the rocks”: here, 173 glaciers cover an area of 40 sq. metres (6% of the Upper Engadin), gathering around the highest peaks in the Eastern Alps like ice cubes around the slice of lemon in a Martini. Undisputedly ranking in first place is the Morteratsch Glacier, at around seven kilometres the longest glacier in the Engadin. Yet other glaciers in the region, bearing such melodious names as Roseg, Tschierva, Sella and Pers, also offer an equally striking display of nature.
