Vals 3000 plus: The Fanellhorn is the highest summit among the marked three thousand metre peaks in Vals. The mountain dominates a centrally situated self-contained massif within the vast valley landscape as a distinctive pyramid.

The Fanellhorn allows views down into part of the Vals Valley, which remains hidden to most visitors. In the south-east of the mountain there are large mountain lakes and the second largest glacier in the Vals Valley with the Fanell glacier. The snow-covered mountains of the Adula massif and the rugged rocky peaks in the Rheinwald and Misox seem close enough to touch from the summit.

Safety information

Requirements: A technically easy tour (T4) for good alpine hikers, however when wet, cold, or in case of snow or fog, 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

Turn-by-turn directions

The road from Zervreila Restaurant to the chapel is paved so for the first half an hour you will be walking on asphalt. The mountain trail starts at the chapel.

From there follow the markings for 1 hour 15 minutes to the deepest dip in the Fanellgrätli ridge (2,710 m). From here follow the blue and white markings first that start out near the north-east ridge for another 1 hour 15 minutes and later lead along the middle of the eastern slope to the peak of the Fanellhorn (3,124 m).
