3 Färmel - Laubbärgli

Alpine culture

The Färmel Valley is about 400 metres above the valley floor. Mountain farming and - in summer - Alpine farming are its defining images. Our hike leads past Albristen and Wyssenberg, two areas where cattle graze on mountain pastures during the summer. The warm and often humid south-facing areas are productive and well-developed. Larch forests thrive in the warm location. After climbing over the long ridge of Mt. Schatthore, we briefly cross the somewhat exposed crest (2,085 m a.s.l.), the highest point of the day and a nice starting point for many paraglider pilots. One final look up at the mighty Mt. Albristhorn before we make our way down the windy trail to Mt. Laubbärgli.
