Bellavista (Bernina)

Bellavista (3,922 m) is a mountain in the Bernina Range in Switzerland and Italy. The mountain is bounded on the east by the Fuorcla Bellavista and on the west by the Pass dal Zupò. There are four summits on the main ridge, at the heights of 3,799 m, 3,888 m, 3,890 m and 3,922 m from east to west.
