Not really wizard-related, but this article was worth sharing. Frozen mummies litter the trail to Everest's peak. Landmarks on the mountain are named for the corpses of climbers huddled next to them; "Green Boots Cave," "Rainbow Valley."
A true wizard's paradise, the Sphinx Observatory in Jungfraujoch, Switzerland is the highest-altitude structure in all of Europe.
It is situated in the Swiss Alps atop a hollow glacier that many miners died to carve out. Within the observatory there is a 76cm telescope with Cassegrain and Coudé focus, and just below the observatory there is a research station where atmospheric and astronomical data are collected and studied.
Initially, the observatory was only approachable via a treacherous climb to the top (or via Tenser's Floating Disk), but in the early 1900s a train was put in to aid ascent.
Within the cavern there is a gallery of ice statues that never melt. It is claimed they are sculptures, but undoubtedly they are the work of a supreme magus whose spellcraft turned animals, people, and automobiles into ice.
