The ancient Stockalper Trail leads in about 40 minutes through a beech and birch forest to the site of the legendary gold mine of Gondo. Romans, members of the Stockalper dynasty and gold speculators searched here for the yellow treasure. Visitors follow in their footsteps, from the first discovery of gold to a tunnel in the gold mine. Mallet and chisel await the discoverers, who may want to pry a bit of the coveted ore from the mine. On the return hike to the gold museum in Gondo they will pass the gold mills.
