In @valaiswallis, everything is a little bit bigger and mightier. The #mountains might spring to mind, and it’s true, 22 #mountains over 4,000 metres are fully in the canton of Valais. However, there is more than just the #Alps to marvel at, with the Grande Dixence dam a unique sight: at an altitude of more than 2,000m, it keeps the Lac des Dix in place With a height of 285m, it is something of a record-breaker and also the tallest construction in #Switzerland. Those looking for the best views of the imposing gravity dam should copy @adrianospics and cycle there. Starting in #Sitten, this involves an impressive ascent through the Val des Dix.
