This picturesque area is blanketed in snow for six months of the year, rendering the road impassable. Despite the less-than-ideal weather during my visit, I consider myself fortunate to have experienced this unique place. Being at such a high altitude, spotting wildlife was a challenge, but I captured a delightful soundscape featuring a stream flowing from the top of the mighty glacier. Take a moment to relax and imagine yourself surrounded by the serene beauty of white snow peaks in the highest inhabited village in Europe.
