Vals 3000 plus: The Faltschonhorn is the three thousand peak for hiking above the village and the easiest one to climb in the Vals Valley. Situated in the middle of the border ridge that separates the Vals Valley from Val Lumnezia, it sits enthroned above the sunny meadows of the Leis hay mountains.

Safety information

A technically easy hike (T3) for good mountaineers, however when wet, cold, or in case of snow, caution is advised especially near the peak.

Mother cows defend their calves. Keep a large distance and be aware of how the mother cow is behaving.

Keep the dog on a leash and let it go in case of emergency or attack. link behavior http://www.wandern.ch/de/wandern/sicher-unterwegs/mutterkuhherden
