Swiss Alps - Facts and Visitor Information
Note: This page is similar to wiki, which means you can edit the content.


The Swiss Alps are a subdivision of the mountain range known as the Alps. They occupy three fifths of the country of Switzerland, or nearly 70%. The mountains range between about 3000 and 10000 feet (900 and 3000 meters). Although the Alps span through many countries, when people think of them, they most often think of the Swiss Alps because of their beauty and magnificance. The Swiss Alps are also known for their beautiful valleys, jagged peaks, and even the mountain towns that sit in the foothills. The most jagged peak which rises high into the sky, known as Matterhorn is also located in the Swiss Alps.
