At the southeast of the crater Plato (101 km), is a mountainous area called Montes Alpes. It is divided into two by a straight valley, called Vallis Alpes. I do not know the origin of this interesting feature, which becomes even more puzzling since in the middle of this valley, there is a ditch that divides the valley into two, along its entire length.
Vallis Alpes, makes the communication between Mare Frigoris to the east, and Mare Imbrium to the west.
