Description:

The Rhône Glacier is a glacier in the Swiss Alps and the source of the river Rhône and one of the primary contributors to Lake Geneva in the far eastern end of the Swiss canton of Valais. Because the glacier is located close to the Furka Pass road it is easily accessible. Personally, I preferred the outside view of the glacier, the lake and beginnings of the Rhone river rather than the walk inside the glacier. Not sure if you're supposed to but we walked down to the water's edge. It's fascinating to continue down the valley towards Montreux (as we did) and see how the relatively small, fast-flowing stream turns into a wide majestic river.
