Valley of the Ten Peaks could have easily been called Valley of the Ten Mountains as you are literally surrounded by steep cliff faces capped with snow. A wilderness experience.

Hike in is the only way to see the valley. You need a minimum of 3 hrs Which would require a good uphill pace with many switchbacks.
