UNESCO World's Heritage Sardona Tectonic Arena
The Tschingelhörner are above the Flims Laax resort and are notable for their prominent peaks as well as a sharp line that runs horizontally through the rock formation. The Tschingelhörner are part of the Sardona Tectonic Arena – a mountain landscape between the Anterior Rhine Valley, the Sernftal Valley and the Walensee Lake – which is geologically unique in the world, because the process of mountain formation is highly visible there. This area, comprising more than 300 square kilometers, was included in July 2008 in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
