The Schwarzhorn is 3146 meters above sea level, south of the Flüela Pass. This symmetrical pyramid between the Flüela Valley and the Dischma Valley consists of dark amphibolite, which is why the mountain is called Schwarzhorn (“Black Horn”).
The descent from the Ischalp down to Clavadel and Davos is therefore but one example of the seemingly innumerable winter hiking trails to be enjoyed both in and around Davos.
Davos earns its reputation as a Mecca for snowboarders.
In the 13th century, the German-speaking Walsers settled the mountainous areas in Davos and Klosters. In the remotest area of the romantic side valley of Sertig, farming settlements still dominate the landscape.
