Dent de Nendaz – Tracouet

Mountains – On December 20, 1958 the gondola train Nendaz-Tracout was inaugurated in the presence of the press, numerous guests and the local population. The new installation was celebrated in a grand way and many photographs were taken. The Canton of Valais had gained another resort village.

The Rhone Valley at your feet, 2000 meters below, and impressive views from up here as you gaze down upon the seemingly miniature railway and cars journeying on the motorway.

Pater Placidus a Spescha knew his way around in the Disentis mountain world. He sought minerals, certain flowers and drew maps – and up here we find ourselves walking in his footsteps.

Engstligenalp – and the Wildstrubel

Mountains – The Engstligen Alp at Adelboden is a plateau with an abundance of water and a long Alpine tradition, at the foot of the striking Wildstrubel. The streams that arise here all flow to one point and fall thunderously as the Engstligen Falls 600 meters into the valley, across a rock face.

Those who look towards Wildstrubel from Adelboden know little of the peaceful Alp that lies almost hidden at half-height in the valley basin. The entrance leads past the 600 meter-high Engstligenfälle.
