Take a brief "power nap" on a hot slab of granite, surrounded by ibex, chamois and marmots, build dams with your children in the Gisentella or simply savour the wondrous silence of a deserted high mountain valley. The sharply pointed pyramid of the Bietschhorn to the south and the elongated Petersgrat to the north form the boundary to this jewel behind the Tellialp. From Blatten, walk via Weissenried and picturesque "Gassun" to the Tellialp and onwards in a northerly direction along the Gisentella.
