From Schlappin you climb up through a fairytale forest to the Saas Alps and on to the untouched karst landscape on the Rätschenjoch. As you descend through the Gafiatal, a valley rich in flowers and water, your gaze will always be drawn to the steep limestone walls of the Rätikon chain - a paradise for sports climbers. Rockfall blocks characterise the primal landscape in the lower part of the Gafia valley and make agricultural use difficult - still today the most important economic sector in the high valley of St. Antönien with its characteristic Walser scattered settlement cultural landscape.
