The Crossing Of The Lysjoch From The Italian To Swiss Alps!

This passage marks the entry in to the true upper sanctuary of the Monte Rosa Massif. Nearly all the tops of the range can be seen from here including the Margherita Hut on the Signalkuppe (4554m). Lyskamm also towers above the col with the Dent Blanche in the centre of the picture and Obergabelhorn & Zinalrothorn on the other side of the Zermatt Valley.
