A hike for parents who are enthusiastic about exercise. T1
A paved and almost traffic-free road leads to Val Nalps, which was created in the sixties for the construction of the dam wall. The slope is nice and even and it goes fast. The exhaust air shaft of the NEAT tunnel arouses our interest: Since 2016, the express trains from Erstfeld to Bodio have been roaring 800 metres deeper through the 57km long base tunnel. On the other side of the Rein da Nalp we see the Maiensässe of Pardatsch. The Alpweg used to lead over this alp into the valley. Before the old and the new path reunite, we have to cross a dark, unlit tunnel. There is only one thing: courageously go in, because after a short time the end is visible again. In ten wide bends, the last meters of altitude are then overcome beyond the dam wall. On a bench we can rest and let our gaze wander over the lake and the surrounding mountains.
Along the lake there is still an old tank track, because until a few decades ago the military was still practicing here with howitzers. Today we simply enjoy the peace and quiet in this beautiful mountain valley.
The way back is on the same route.
If you like, you can hike along the lake even further into the valley.
If you arrive by train, you have to add about 30 minutes to the hiking time. There is occasional car traffic and there are also bikers on the road.
Picnic: There is no restaurant.
In Sedrun we take the turnoff on the main road in a southerly direction to Surrein. After the bridge we continue to follow the road up to the village. At the next junction we turn left. Now we stay on the road to the reservoir.
