Description

This trail was once a frequently used, busy route to Sion. The chapel in Zmutt bears witness to that era. In Zmutt the inn "Jaegerstube" invites you to take a midday break, and on the way back along the right-side valley flank, restaurant "Zum See" beckons in the hamlet bearing the same name. The descent to Zermatt helps you to digest - the visual as well as the culinary pleasures of this tour.
