Swiss National Park

The Swiss National Park is a high mountain nature reserve (altitude 1500 to 3174 m) situated mainly in the Lower Engadine Dolomites. It is fully protected against human onslaughts: from the day it was established, hunting and fishing were prohibited and forest exploration and grazing ceased. It shares a border with the Italian National Park Stilfser Joch.
