Zwischbergen, Gondo - Scenic & side valleys
And yes, you are still on Swiss territory! On the fringes of Valais, close to the border with Italy, this wonderfully concealed valley is well worth the detour...

The road opposite Gondo along the Italian border is built on a terrace that eventually opens onto the Zwischbergental, a superb, unspoilt valley 16km in length. The climb up to this remote valley on the south side of the Simplon Pass is both challenging and surprising: those who venture there appear to have stumbled into a place out of time. An absolute must if you happen to find yourself in the area!
