dü - For the Love of the Alps

Saas-Fee is often referred to as the "Pearl of the Alps". Thirteen impressive peaks in the 4000 - meter range (over 13'000 feet) surround the quaint village in the Valais region. Some people perceive the mountains as somewhat threatening, but the locals love them. To them these peaks represent shelter and stability. In their opinion, it's a pearl protected not by its shell, but by the mountains that surround it.
