[edit] General information

[edit] Geographic information

The Valais (German: Wallis) is one of the cantons of Switzerland in the southwestern part of the country, around the valley of the Rhône from its headwaters to Lake Geneva, separating the Pennine Alps from the Bernese Alps. The canton of Valais lies in the southwest of Switzerland. To its south lies Italy, to the southwest France. To the north the canton is bounded by the Swiss cantons of Vaud and Berne; the cantons of Uri and Ticino lie to its east.

The canton of Valais is probably best known for the Matterhorn and ski resorts such as Zermatt or Verbier.

The Canton of Valais is divided into 14 districts and half-districts:

[edit] General mountainering information

The wide, glacial Rhône valley dominates the area. There are many side valleys which branch off the main valley. These vary from narrow and remote to reasonably populous and popular. At the head of the Mattertal valley lies Zermatt, a pretty tourist village dominated by views of the Matterhorn (4,478 m14,691.601 ft
2.783 miles
). Situated parallel to the Mattertal valley, are the Val d'Aniviers and the Saas valley.

These three valleys are one of the most popular of Switzerland both during the winter and the summer. In total, there are over 120 tourist destinations in Valais. The most popular skiing and snowboarding resorts are Crans-Montana, Zermatt, Zinal Saas Fee, 4 Vallées and Porte du Soleil.

Fifty of the mountains exceed 4,000 m with the Dufourspitze (4,634 m15,203.412 ft
2.879 miles
), being the highest. Furthermore, there are numerous glaciers including several of the largest in the European Alps. This makes Valais the place to be for any mountaineer looking for a serious endeavor.
