The Rhine Gorge near Flims provides some of the most magnificent and diverse landscapes found in the Alps. A wild gorge with a turbulent river, steep white walls and extensive forests. The tranquil lakes are filled as if by magic and rare birds breed in the riverside woodlands. This miniature paradise is even home to orchids. The Rhine Gorge's history started with the mighty Flims landslide over 10,000 years ago. With more than 10,000 million cubic metres of rock, this is the biggest landslide in the Alps and one of the world's largest. The valley was completely filled with debris several hundred metres thick and totaling 50 km2. This beautiful hike takes you from Laax Staderas into the Uaul Grond, the extensive forest on the material produced by the Flims landslide. Highlights include the «Il Spir» viewing platform over the Rhine Gorge in Conn and Lake Cauma.
