What's Switzerand?

by Atsushi

I do not have any knowledge about Switzerland. Therefore, I investigated what kind of country it is. Speaking of Switzerland, it is the Alps. There is the 4634 m Monte Rosa, the highest peak, and about forty 4000m class mountains, such as the Matterhorn and the Jungfrau.

Mountains, glaciers, and lakes occupy 3/4 of the country, and the number of domestic lakes is blessed with about 1500.

In Switzerland tourism is promoted as a major industry. One can follow and stick to any hearts of the mountains by railroad or buses, and you can reach easily by mountain railway, ropeway, cable car, etc. a place like the summit of Mt. Fuji.

However, if it continues to develop like this, it becomes destruction of nature. Moreover, spreading around railroads and road networks leads also to environmental destruction.

Even if Switzerland escapes war as a permanently neutral state, there is no border in an environmental problem. We have to consider the environmental problem firmly from now on.
