Details

Description

By entering the Lavtina Valley, you also enter the Federal Hunting Ban Area Graue Hörner, founded in 1901. After the ibexes were exterminated in Switzerland in 1809, wild ibexes were released here for the first time in 1911. Once in the valley 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 Heidel Pass with an excellent view of the razor-sharp line of the Glarus main overthrust at the Ringelspitz and the Sardona-Segnes Group. With a little luck you will spot a bearded vulture released into the wild in the Calfeisental. The view at the idyllic Plattenseeli is particularly spectacular.

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.
