How did the Valaisans used to live, how did their villages look and what characterises a typical Valais house? This leisurely hike to the villages on the sunny side of the Rhone Valley combines the pleasure of walking with a little bit of Valais history.
Black larch houses identify Betten, the starting point of the hike, as a typical Valais village. It's certainly worth taking a short tour here, as this will give you an impression of how the people of the mountain village used to live.
Afterwards, follow the hiking trail from the western end of Betten towards Goppisberg and Greich, both of which can be reached in around 30 minutes on foot. These two pretty Valais villages on sunny mountain terraces offer a clear view of the Rhone Valley and the Valaisan Alps. Ride the cable car to return to the sun plateau. The third mountain village of Ried-Mo¨rel is just a 30-minute walk away and also accessible by cable car (from the Riederalp West mountain station or Mörel valley station).
