Expedition 01: Expeditionsvorbereitungen

Description

Welcome to the expedition to the land of extremes! Explore life and dynamics in the porchabella glacier forefield. Where strong pioneers and delicate mosses take root, where a roaring stream branches into glittering chains, where becoming and passing are commonplace and with a little luck you will even discover a ptarmigan or hear the call of the roosters.

If you are denied the latter, you will find an example in the audio. Please use your headphones, as a loud playback would disturb the birds. Ptarmigans are sensitive birds and potentially endangered. Thank you for your consideration.

In the pictures you will find an expedition overview: The route first follows the blue-white-blue marked mountain path towards Porta d'Es-cha, then leads pathless through the glacier apron and later along the stream via lake back to the hut. Please stay on the route to protect the sensitive vegetation.

We hope you enjoy the expedition into the glacier apron. Let your smartphone guide you. The audio file can be found at the back of the pictures.
