Details

Description

At the Cholhüttenau sports field, the path initially leads through dense beech forest via the Schröterhütten to the hunting lodge on Guaggis. Over partially open alpine pastures and light fir forest we reach the Alp Salaz slightly uphill. Alp Salaz is a fertile high terrace above the deeply incised Tamina Valley. It opens up an almost dizzying deep view to the village of Vättis. Less frightening is the view to the south into the Rhine Valley and Prättigau. On the steep mountain flanks of the Calanda massif, switzerland's first wolf pack has returned to home since the extinction of the wolf in the 19th century.

Geheimtipp

For guests who have enjoyed the view of the Rhine Valley, we recommend that you also take the circular hike to the Pizalun.

Sicherheitshinweis

Depending on the weather, individual sections can be slippery.
