Explanation: The Pro Natura nature reserve known as “Aletsch Forest” is one of the most beautiful mountain forests in Switzerland. With its forests of larches and Swiss stone pine, dense in places and sparse in others, and dotted with blooming Alpine roses in summer, it is always well worth a hike.

Explanation: Since 1933, when the Aletsch Forest was declared a nature reserve, it has been left to its own devices. Thus, dead wood remains standing, rots, falls over and serves as a valuable foundation for new life.
