Switzerland - Gemmi Pass (CH-13726)

To be honest, my first thought when I received this postcard was "Well, whatever it is, it's very beautiful, but what's that?!". And of course, Wikipedia is very helpful in such cases :)

Gemmi Pass (el. 2314 m.) is a high mountain pass across the Bernese Alps connecting Leukerbad in the canton of Valais in Switzerland with Kandersteg in the canton of Bern.
The pass lies between the Daubenhorn (2942 m.) in the west and the Plattenhörnern (2855 m.) in the east.
The pass is the west end of the Aar Massif and the east end of the Wildstrubel Massif. Near the pass is the Daubensee, which has no outlet above ground.
