These wonderful ice sculptures are a creation of the unsurpassed master: NATURE!
The result of a synergy of water, gravity, wind, ice-cold air and atmospheric light refraction.
IN WINTER WONDERLAND!
Exactly the conditions that prevail during winter in this deep valley in the Swiss Alps.
This is because the rock walls in which it is nestled are so high that no sunlight reaches the valley floor from November to March!
This masterpiece of Nature is the lower end of a huge icefall, that MADELEINE and ERIC call HEAVEN’S GATE!
SEE IT FOR FREE!
And best of all! Its sightseeing is free! For Nature demands no admission fee!
Just a little perseverance, some puff as well as some sweat!
