Hint

Intro

The Rhine Gorge is impressive testimony to the largest mapped rockslide in the Alps, and looks particularly impressive from the bridge over the Versam Ravine. Also fascinating are the huge wash fountains in Valendas.

Description

From the village of Tamins, the trail goes downhill slightly into the valley and then climbs up on the other side to Bonaduz. After the village, you hike through the forest, deeply immersed in nature. Here is the first, albeit small pass of Sigl Ault. Up and down, through cool forests, quaint villages and hot meadows. This is followed by a descent into the Rhine Gorge. The Romansch word 'ruinaulta' is made up of the words “ruina”, meaning quarry or scree field, and “aulta”, meaning high. This refers to the high limestone cliffs. These impressive rock formations are impossible to miss. At times hiking among fir trees, at others among alders, follow the Vorderrhein river all the way to Ilanz. Those who want to go for a refreshing swim will find many suitable spots. Food/drink and accommodation along the route Valendas, Gasthaus am Brunnen Vaduz, Hotel Alte Post Accommodation in llanz Ilanz, Hotel Rätia Ilanz, Eden Hotel und Restaurant
