Observatoire FXB - Tignousa Saint Luc Switserland 2000m

St. Luc seems to hang on by a hair to the steep flanks of Mt. Bella Tola. Deep gorges separate the individual terraces of the Val d'Anniviers. Because the villages here are so remote -- they can only be reached via a winding mountain road -- they have managed to maintain their special culture.

Description

There are many hiking trails that fan out from the various villages all along the valley. One of the prettiest hikes is the mountain tour up the Bella Tola, 3025 m.a.sl., the peak looming between Turtmann Valley and Val d'Anniviers. The hike lasts three hours from the mountain station of the funicular that brings one up to St-Luc - Tignousa, 2169 m.a.s.l. to the peak Bella Tola.

This spectacularly panoramic hike high above the Val d'Anniviers can be done by anyone who is reasonably in shape. The path along to the mountain refuge Bela Tola and from there up to the top is well-marked and easy to hike on. It may be a bit more strenuous towards the top but it is well worth the effort: across the vally one can spy the Weisshorn, Gabelhorn, Matterhorn, Dent Blanche in all their glory. Descents takes place via a panoramic ridge to Lac de l’Aminona and subsequently back to St-Luc.
