Finsteraarhorn is the highest peak of the Bernese Oberland. It is a steep, majestic pyramid, rising from a web of glaciers. Despite its superior height, its northwestern neighbors, Jungfrau (4158m), Mönch (4099m), and Eiger (3970m), are more famous, owing in part to Eiger's towering north face, in part to the tourism that has built up around them.
