The view of the Ferpècle valley

By dukes_jewel
View from above Les Haudères, a village in the Swiss Alps, located in the canton of Valais. The village is situated in the central part of the canton, in the Val d'Hérens, south of Sion. It belongs to the municipality of Evolène.

Les Haudères lies where the valleys of Arolla and Ferpècle (the view is of the Ferpècle valley showing to the left Dent Blanche) meet to form the main valley of Hérens, at an altitude of 1,450 metres above sea level. The village is surrounded by peaks over 3,000 metres high, among which are Dent de Veisivi (3,418), the Tsa de l'Ano (3,368 m) and Mont de l'Etoile (3,370 m).

Dent Blanche is a mountain in the Pennine Alps and at 4,357 metres (14,295 ft) it is one of the highest peaks in the Alps. The region around Dent Blanche consists of many 4000 metres peaks. The Ober Gabelhorn (west), Dent d'Hérens and Matterhorn (south) are the closest high summits.
