Turtmanntal region


Turtmanntal, summer, Valais


The Turtmanntal valley, consisting of the municipalities of Turtmann-Unterems and Agarn on the valley floor plus the mountain villages of Eischoll, Ergisch, Oberems and Gruben/Meiden, boasts one of the most unspoilt landscapes in Switzerland. The Turtmanntal valley is the starting point for countless hikes, including the ascent of the Barrhorn, the highest Alpine peak that can be scaled without mountain climbing gear. Botanists and fans of the natural world will find a real treat in Eischoll, where rare Spring Meadow Saffron grows, or in the Turtmann-Unterems region where Summer Pheasant's Eye blooms. The region also has spectacular routes for climbers, especially around the Turtmann Hut, and mountain bikers can enjoy the Lunggi and Lufu Trail in Eischoll.
