Description

The Binntal valley in Valais counts as one of the world’s most important mineral sites. But besides crystals, other very different treasures are admired here too. During centuries of work, valley dwellers have shaped their barren environment to create an idyllic landscape that stands in delightful contrast to the natural, rugged and unspoiled scenery. Close-up views of the Binntal valley landscape are best enjoyed on a hike from Binn to Ernen. A route leading through well-preserved villages and hamlets with picturesque old wooden houses tinted by the sun. Equally as impressive are also the wild and rugged Twingischlucht canyon and the idyllic route along the Trusera (traditional Valais-style irrigation channel).
