La Vallée de Binn (Valais) Étude géographique, géologique, mineralogique, et pittoresque

    Abstract

    THE Binnenthal, a valley in the south of Switzerland on the Italian border, is little known to the many English people who yearly visit that delightful country. It was “discovered” more than twenty-five years ago by a well-known member-of the Alpine Club. He loved the quiet and beauty of this valley, as well as the numerous walks and climbs; when his friends asked him to describe it, his answer was, “There is no glacier there and no alpine glow,” and, thanks to his reply, the valley has remained unspoilt by the tourist crowd.
