  • Very nice place but if the gondola is not working, which is the case for summer 2019, you need to take the stairs which are a lot and certainly takes some time to go down and then go up.

The history leaves you considering the ebbs and flows of nature and the monumental quantity of ice that has been lost since the industrial era. Here the melt is plain as day marked for kilometers in jagged canyon walls. Listening carefully, you can hear the constant destruction of rock and the glacier carving its way through the valley and slipping and melting down absolutely other worldly and should be experienced in the next few years before the glacier is lost to history.
