High Alpine Hike in the Saas Valley, Following Ancient Walser Trails

The easy hike is one of the best ways to enter Saas Fee. There is a segment that can be termed panoramic with spectacular views onto the other side of the valley.

The Walser, one of the original peoples inhabiting the Valais, emigrated to the East and to the South along very specific routes. One such trail leads right to the village of Gspon. It followed the valley till Saas-Grund. Here it went across the Monte Moro-Pass and wound up in Italy.
