The pass hike over the Saflisch reveals the view of the Valais four-thousand-metre peaks for the first time. The terrace village of Rosswald is beautifully situated with a view of the Rhone Valley.
The Alpine Pass Trail brings together many of the most beautiful crossings in the Grisons and Valais Alps in 33 stages. The 12 stage leads from the Binntal valley to Rosswald.
Pass hiking is a discipline in its own right with its own audience. It is not the mountain hikers who seek the distant panoramic view from the summit or the confirmation that they have "made" the mountain. They are hikers who are driven by curiosity, who climb the passes, Furggeln or Bocchette. Because every little pass holds the secret of the unknown on the other side. The map information is not enough, it is about discovering a new world with each valley - and leaving another world behind.
At the restaurant Fleschboden after the Saflischpass it is worth taking a break on the sun terrace to enjoy the fantastic view.
The hike is at your own risk. Insurance is the responsibility of the hiker.
Equipment adapted to the weather is indispensable. For all hikes it is strongly recommended to wear good, sturdy mountain boots.
