Ferpècle Glacier

The 6-km-long glacier lies to the south-east of Evolène. The relatively flat glacier ice field in the upper part is also termed the ‘Plateau d'Hérens’. The glacier is flanked by the Dent Blanche (4357m). The oft-travelled pack route in Roman times leading from the Val d'Hérens into the Italian Valpelline passed through this area; stretches of this established high-Alpine route still remain in tact in places.
