Switzerland is famous for its mountain scenery and perfect ski slopes. Almost 65 percent of this country’s land area is composed of mountains belonging to the Alpine Region and specifically called the Swiss Alps. Switzerland is one of five countries that share the Alps together with Italy, France, Austria and Germany. The highest mountain in the Swiss Alps is the Monte Rosa in the Swiss-Italian border with a height of 4634 meters. However, its most popular mountain can very well be the Matterhorn.
