Glattalp Karst Craters Covered by Hoar Frost
Glattalp is more a trough than an elevated plain, so it can get quite cold there with hoar frost in the morning.
Karst topography is a type of landscape shaped by the dissolution of a soluble layer rock washed out
over thousands of years, leaving caves underground and craters on the surface.
Glattalp and neighbouring Charretalp are among a few examples of karst landscapes in Switzerland.
