34. Apollo 17 site: Moderate resolution vertical view
The Taurus-Littrow valley is bounded on three sides by large mountains that compose a portion of the rim of the Serenitatis Basin; the three most prominent mountains around the landing site are South Massif, North Massif, and East Massif. Closely spaced domical hills, smaller in size than the massifs, compose the northeastern edge of the valley (Sculptured Hills, east of North Massif). Littrow Crater is the partly flooded crater north of the valley.
