Gspon, a mountain village, is located at an almost inhospitable location high above the Vispa River Valley. To this day, no road leads up to Gspon, which makes it a particularly idyllic village. When you glance down into the deep canyon, you can see the roaring confluence of the rivers Saas and Mattervispa. The steep Saas Valley extends towards the south.
