The upper Rhône River location map

The upper Rhône River

The Rhône River originates from the Rhône glacier on the right of this view (not directly visible from this perspective) and flows through the Valais between the snow covered peaks of the Pennine Alps (left) and the Bernese Alps (right). In the background, north of the Mont Blanc the course of the Rhône turns north and it enters into the Lake Geneva (far right). In the very near foreground the upmost tributaries of the Rhine river can be seen.
