Panoramaweg Tasch or the Panoramic path around Tasch presents an ideal alternative to skiing, with open views, romantic forests and pure, blissful tranquility. It is worth planning the timing of this walk carefully. In winter the sun sets early, and the mountains soon wrap the valley in their cold shadow. Ideally then, walkers should set off early. The trail leads at first across wide snowy expanses on the valley floor before following the edge of the protective forest along the foot of the slopes. After a bridge across the Vispa river, the route climbs into the picturesque mixed forest. Finally it leads along a high trail at an altitude of about 1500 meters back down the valley revealing magnificent views. This easy, breath taking trail starts at Tasch and ends at Tasch with total distance of 4.36 kilometers taking approximately an hour and 25 minutes. The highest point on this trail is at 1584 meters with an ascent of 302 meters and descent of 302 meters. If you want to see the breath taking views of the Mischabel mountains with the Taschhorn and Dom, this is the trail.

Your children will have a magnificent time walking in the fluffy snow surrounded by beautiful alpine mountains with the view of the village.
