Peaceful Mountain Experience
The Täschalp also offers alternatives to those who prefer not to hike. To find your inner-peace, visit the mountain chapel, observe mountain ibexes and marmots, or discover colorful fauna. While going for walks through the lonely mountain valley at the foot of the Rimpfischhorn, the rolling sound of Mellich Stream, and pristine nature will surely enchant you.
One of the most important highlights of the Täschalp is the alpine dairy (the Sennerei). In July the cows are driven from Täsch and the surrounding region to the mountain pastures so that they can spend the summer there. The juices of the alpine herbs growing in the lush meadows find their way into the milk of the cows and enhance the flavor of the world-renowned Täschalp-cheese, giving it a distinctive spicy flavor that is a special treat when it has reached maturity. In mid-September, the cows are colorfully decorated and driven back into the valley. Different mountain cheeses and Swiss Ziger cheese can be purchased at the dairy, though availability varies.
