Difficulty: Routes of all levels of difficulty, from short easy valley strolls to demanding and exhillarating mountain traverses. Must See: Traditional wooden houses and barns of the Val d''Hérens, the soaring peaks of the Matterhorn and Dent Blanche, secluded glens in the Saastal, Swiss mountain huts, cheese and chocolate! The Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Zinarothorn, Ober Gabelhorn, Dent Blanche, Weisshorn, Bietschhorn, Grand Combin - these are some of the most dramatic mountains in Europe. Here they form a backdrop to a series of routes that should answer the dreams of any keen mountain walker.

Best known, perhaps, for the resorts of Zermatt and Saas Fee, the Valais district of Switzerland is also the location of the Lötschental and Turtmanntal, the Vals d''Anniviers, Hérens, Bagnes and Ferret - valleys in which there are numerous alp hamlets nestling among the pastures. There are also dozens of small lakes, the longest glacier in the Alps, pristine snowfields, meadows full of flowers, marmots that will eat out of your hand, and no shortage of accommodation, ranging from low-cost dormitories and campsites to the grandest of hotels.

In this, the third edition of his popular guide, Kev Reynolds has selected and described 120 routes that represent the very best of this magical region. Rewritten and with a new design, fresh maps and colour photos throughout, Walking in the Valais is your passport to some memorable walking holidays in this Alpine wonderland.
