The stunning Swiss Alps cover 65 percent of the Switzerland's surface area with dramatic mountain scenery. Its spectacular peaks and valleys are the result of tectonic thrusts, among them the Jungfrau-Aletsch region, the first World Heritage Site in the Alps. Connected by a network of trains and cable cars, this majestic vacation spot is accessible for all. The Swiss Alps are home to some of the highest mountains in the Alps, including the Monte Rosa, which stands at 4,634 m (15,203 ft). Pristine white snow and perfect blue skies await you, and ski sports and hiking trails aplenty top the list of things to do.
