The Rhine Gorge is one of the most spectacular landscapes in the Alps. On this hike you are on the rockslides of the Flims landslide on the way.
The Rhine gorge near Flims is one of the most magnificent and varied landscapes in the Alps. A wild ravine with a raging river, white cliffs and wide forests. The quiet lakes are filled by magic hands, rare birds breed in the floodplain forests. Even orchids can be found in this small paradise. The history of the Rhine Gorge with its mighty Flims landslide began around 10,000 years ago. With over 10'000 million cubic meters of rock, it is the largest landslide in the Alps, one of the most important in the world. The valley was completely filled up by a several hundred meters thick debris mass to over 50 km2. On this beautiful hike you are starting from Laax Staderas on the way in Uaul Grond, the large forest on the landslides of the Flims landslide. Highlights include the observation deck "Il Spir" over the Rhine gorge in Conn and Lake Cauma.
