Valser Horn Map

From Nufenen (recommended to park on the west side of the village) go northwards along the evident ridge that can be covered OR following the bends often well compressed to make the sleds go down, OR going up on the ground to Tallialp. From here bend slightly towards the west, always going up along the ridge if possible, or alternatively going around it from the east side. Reached 2460 go for a wide and long traverse to reach the evident summit (2885). Descent along the ascent route or on the opposite and steeper side that reaches Mittelegga (right orographic side of Alterschbach).



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
