Morteratsch Glacier, Bernina massif, Pontresina, Switzerland.
Morteratsch Glacier (Romansh: Vadret da Morteratsch) flows from Bernina massif in Upper Engadine, Graubünden (Grisons) canton, Switzerland, the Alps, Europe. A favorite walk is from Morteratsch (second train stop from Pontresina towards Bernina Pass) to Refuge Boval, which has a restaurant and overnight lodging. The trail is well graded, 5 or 6 miles round trip with 2700 feet gain. Return via lower trail for partial loop. The Swiss valley of Engadine translates as the “garden of the En (or Inn) River” (Engadin in German, Engiadina in Romansh, Engadina in Italian).
