The village of Tamins is the starting point of this exciting round trip. In the northern rim of the village you walk northwards into the Lavoitobel. The wild and secluded valley is home of deer, chamois and many local birds. In the end of the valley there is a rather steep ascent to the Ringelspitz hut, which is open during the whole summertime and on sunny weekends in spring and fall. Ideal for a lunch break or why not spending a night in the beautiful surrounding of the Alps. The descent follows the hiking route to Grossalp - Kunkelspass - Foppaloch - Tamins.
