We're looking east from Haiming at the westernmost flat-bottomed part of the Inn Valley. River sediments have filled in the bottom of the Inn Valley's "V" to give this flat floodplain. The Calcareous (limestone) Alps rise abruptly to the left (the north), whereas the metamorphic Alps rise more gradually to the right (the south).
If you''re still interested in the shape of the valley, you can take an excursion ahead to see the view back to where we're standing. That page will give you a link to resume the full trip with next image in the regular full series.
