It is one of the Switzerland tourist attractions worth seeing. It is also Switzerland’s only national park, covering almost half the area of the entire country. It is a refuge for various wildlife such as elks, marmots and eagles, as well. Switzerland, famous for its
startling landscapes, has one national park, the biggest nature conserve in the country. The Swiss National Park is in the far southeastern corner of the country, in the lovely Engadine valley at an elevation of 1400 to 3170 meters and covers 172 square kilometers. It’s about 2-1/2 hours from Zurich. The park has rivers winding through deep vale, thick forests, wildlife — golden eagles, chamois, deer, marmots, birds, ibex — and high mountains. Bright wildflowers bloom along the 80 kilometers of hiking trails.
