Mount Valserberg is a historical transit route: Until the new road to Ilanz was built in 1879/ 80 all goods headed south were transported to the Hinterrhein over the Valserberg. The legendary mountain haulers mainly carried their heavy loads over the Valserberg during the winter months. The people of Vals also took livestock over the mountain to Bellenz (Bellinzona) and Lauis (Lugano) to be sold at southern markets.
Safety informationRequirements: Surefootedness is required between Tschifera and the Wallatsch mountain farm (T2). Caution is advised when wet, cold or in the case of snow or fog on a section of the trail between the Wallatsch mountain farm and Mount Valserberg.
