An overwhelming valley
The Saas valley is a side valley of the Upper Rhone valley in the Valais, south of the towns Visp and Brig. Its landscape is spectacular. It is a place where it's easy for a human being to feel extremely small.
The beginning of the valley is very narrow. Huge rock walls rise up to the snow capped mountains and glaciers. The southern part of the valley is dominated by a large dam, holding back the Mattmark lake.
Towns in the Saas valley
The upper part of the valley is a bit wider, and that's where the larger villages such as Saas-Balen, Saas-Grund and Saas-Almagell can be found. The largest town is Saas-Fee, right next to the highest peaks of the Alps. The mountains here are a year-round paradise for snow boarders.
