Vantage Point in the Val d'Anniviers

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. This spectacularly panoramic hike high above the Val d'Anniviers can be done by anyone who is reasonably in shape.

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.
