Giesch-Tatz Suön und Ladu Suön


This is not the most beautiful trail for exploring bisses, as the five bisses featured are mostly piped. However, the walk takes place between 1000 and 1800 metres altitude, offering a richly varied vegetation from dry meadows to Scots pines and magnificent alpine larch. With a little curiosity and an attentive eye you might spot lizards, butterflies, red deer, mountain goats and all the flora and fauna of the region which is recognised by the Confederation and supported by UNESCO.
