Ins Val Nalps, a paved, almost traffic-free road leads to the Vorderrhein power station. We leave the beautiful wooden houses of Surrein behind us, the slope is even and soon we pass the exhaust shaft of the NEAT tunnel. Recently, 800 metres lower, the express trains from Erstfeld to Bodio roared through the 57km long tunnel. On the left we see the Maiensässe from Pardatsch, where the alpine trail used to lead into the Val Nalps. Before the old and the new way reunite, we have to cross a dark, unlit tunnel. There is only one thing: to go into it courageously, because after a short time the end is visible again. In ten wide bends, the last meters of altitude are then overcome to a little beyond the dam. We can rest on a bench and let our eyes wander. The reservoir was built in 1962 and the wall has a height of 127 meters. The water is fed to the Vorderrhein power plant in Sedrun.

The way back is on the same route.


If you like, you can hike along the lake even further into the valley.


If you arrive by train, you have to add about 30 minutes to the hiking time. There is occasional car traffic and there are also bikers on the road.


In Sedrun we take the turnoff on the main road in a southerly direction to Surrein. After the bridge we continue to follow the road up to the village. At the next junction we turn left. Now we stay on the road to the reservoir.
