Lake Viamala



The standard equipment on Via Capricorn includes good footwear, a water bottle and a warm jacket for higher climes, but above all: a binoculars. At the latest after the steep ascent from Alp Biggenmad up to Alperschälli, the binoculars are at hand. Because here the ibexes can be observed particularly often.


On the way – most of the ascent to the Farcletta digl Lai Grand (2659 m above.M sea level) is done – the view glides over the Alperschälli-Seeli. One could ingloriously dismiss the small, clear Seeli as a puddle, if it did not present itself as a magical splash of color in the middle of the barren, stony landscape. And it's in a welcome place, because that's where you want to take a break. Sitting on a stone – no, the meltwater-fed Seeli is too frosty for a bath – you can now enjoy taking treats out of your backpack. Yes, these are also part of the standard equipment. Finally, when picnicking, you enjoy the emerging awareness that you are completely alone in the middle of the mountains. Alone? Maybe yes. Or is it? Because it is quite possible that there will be an encounter with the Capricorn, the king of the Alps.
