Channelling Wes Anderson somewhere on the Furka Pass in southern Switzerland... The Hotel Belvédère, once an idyllic spot for travellers wanting to explore the nearby Rhône Glacier. The 11,000 year old glacier is receding at a rate of approximately 130 feet a year, and as the glacier melts away from the pass, fewer people visit. The hotel is now closed indefinitely. Passers-by still stop to take pictures of the building and its mountainous backdrop, yet the building now stands with its doors and windows boarded-up, a testament to the passage of time and the impact of climate change.
