Details

Description

With the entrance to the Lavtina Valley, you also enter the federal hunting ban area Graue Hörner, founded in 1901. After the ibexes were eradicated in Switzerland in 1809, wild ibexes were released here for the first time in 1911. Once in the basin, the impressive waterfall arena of Batöni opens up, in which the four waterfalls plunge over the steep steps. Here begins the steep ascent to the Heidelpass with an excellent view of the razor-sharp line of the Glarus thrust on the Ringelspitz and the Sardona-Segnes Group. With a little luck you will spot a bearded vulture released into the Calfeisental. Particularly spectacular is the view at the idyllic Plattenseeli.

Geheimtipp

Tour highlight: Waterfall arena "Batöni", silver firs, wild sighting possible (ibex, bearded vulture)

Sicherheitshinweis

Attention: On high-altitude sections, snowfields are possible until the summer months.

On warm early summer days, the streams can swell on the way to the Sardona hut, making it difficult to cross. Therefore, you should not be late on these days on this demanding stage.
