The view (north-westerly) on the Pradätsch over the Tödi Range and towards Lugnez is already impressive. You can see Zervreila and some of the Adula massif's peaks looking into the valley. And the bizarre rocks of the Hora impress on both sides of the mountain. At the summit you enjoy a spectacular view down towards Vals and a vast panoramic view.


You can save time saving (approx. 2 hours) by starting on Riefawald with the tour.  Call the Vals hiking bus. Registration required at phone 081 935 16 49. Timetable see www.vals.ch/.

From Platz, follow Dorfgasse north of the church to the upper edge of the village. From here, the trail leads in a south-eastwardly direction to the north of a small stream and up a steep, rocky slope with hardly any switchbacks. After crossing a dirt road, follow a few steep switchbacks up this slope dotted with light-coloured rocks (beneath the Wissflua). From here, the trail becomes less steep, leading in a north-easterly direction through shrubs and coniferous forests until you reach a series of steep switchbacks that will take you to the Riefa spring pasture (1,642 m).

Continue along this trail, passing through the Riefawald with the Tomülhorn towering above. Follow a series of switchbacks to the Pradätsch (1,953 m). Facing away from the valley, you have a wonderful view of the Tödi Range, while in the other direction you gaze upon Zervreila and many of the peaks of the Adula massif.

You can see a marking (white-red-white) in a south-easterly direction on the signpost on the Pradätsch. Follow the mountain trail marking to reach the Hora summit after approx. 1.5 kilometres (2,372 m). Descent: The same route.
