Erosion caused the mountain to collapse and the vast, pale yellow and reddish rock basin to form, which becomes bigger every year. From the Grabenrad or the Illhorn (2,716 m) there are "fear inspiring" yet stunning views down into the Rhone valley.

Description

Leuk station - Hexenplatz - Pletschen - Bhutan Bridge - Obere Abschlacht - Leuk station

This short hike starts at the Leuk station (625m) and passes the old well before reaching the Hexenplatz. The forest trail follows the Illgraben - an impressive trench where the water continually wears out deep grooves. At the highest point of the trail at 855 metres, the 134-metre long Bhutan Bridge crosses the Illgraben. The hanging walkway that connects the Lower and Upper Valais symbolises the bridging of a cultural divide. The return trip passes through the Pfyn Forest in the direction of Obere Abschlacht and back to Leuk station.
