Landscapes do not stay the same forever - they are created and change over the course of time with the effects of Mother Nature and Man. Along a total of 23 stations, the Theme Trail tells in pictures the history of the formation of this impressive mountain landscape in the forefield of the “Langgletscher“. At the Lötschental Tourist Information Office in Wiler or www.loetschental.ch you can buy for CHF 6.00 a handy booklet as well as order a free flyer full of useful information on climate and glacial landscape (only available in German).
The 1: 25,000 scale hiking map is your perfect companion for an unforgettable day's hiking in the Lötschental. Available from the Lötschental Tourist Information Office in Wiler or online at www.loetschental.ch/webshop
