Hiking: Alpine passes trail

From Simplonpass to Val d'Anniviers

The Alpine-passes trail connects the most beautiful valleys of Valais. This tour starts on Simplonpass. The end of the trip is rough and rocky. Snow covered peaks tower above the valleys of Mattertal and Val d'Anniviers and some of the wildest tales of mountaineers were written in these valleys.
