Lauterbrunnen - the valley of waterfalls

The Bernese Alps are a group of mountain ranges in the western part of the Alps, in Switzerland.
The section of the Bernese Alps above the deep glacial Lauterbrunnen valley, containing 72 waterfalls, is well known for the Jungfrau and Eiger, and the many picturesque valleys in the region.
The valley of Lauterbrunnen (Lauterbrunnental) is one of the deepest in the Alpine chain when compared with the height of the mountains that rise directly on either side.
