Mighty 4000 m peaks, glaciers so close you can touch them, clear blue sky: that's the Saas valley. Take to your snow-shoes to discover a unique mountain world above the valley floor.
The hike connecting Gspon to Saas Grund is an all-time favorite among persons who know this area well. It is part of the 'Great Walser Trail' which traces the historic West-East migration pattern of the Walser. High above the gorge that houses the babbling Saaser Vispa, the trail is mostly just above the tree-line. Because of this, it offers wonderful views of the glaciers of the mighty Mischabel range.
