Mönch (Bernese Alps, Switzerland) by 


Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau… Big chance you’ve heard about them even if you would not be interested in mountains and Europe at all! The view of this tripartite is world-known, and the number of tourists visiting the area and making a train trip to the highest railway station in Europe (located just above Jungfraujoch, to the west of Mönch at an elevation of 3454 metres) is amazing, as is the whole area, inscribed as the natural World Heritage property of Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn in 2001.

This photograph, taken from the last downhill train, shows the 800m high north face of Mönch (4107m; the German word means ‘monk’ in English). Just imagine that the Jungfraubahn railway tunnel runs right under the summit, deep in the rocks!

July 2008. Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn World Natural Heritage, Bernese Oberland, Switzerland.
