Natural forest Val Faller

Naturwald Val Faller
The Val Faller near Mulegns is a side valley of the Surses. In the natural forest reserve east of the hamlet of Tga, a pure larch forest with few spruces and swiss stone pines grows on 31.4 hectares.

Description

The larches make low demands on the soil and even grow here on serpentine stone. From the 13th century onwards, the Walser migrated from the Avers Valley to the Val Faller, engaged in agriculture and alpine farming and used the forest as a supplier of firewood and timber as well as cattle pasture. It has not been used for 50 years. In the upper forest belt, where the forest dissolves into individual trees, black grouse live. The Walser settlement, which was once inhabited all year round, includes the three hamlets of Arnoz, Plang and Tga with mountain pastures, stables and the chapel of the Visitation of the Virgin Mary. A visit is particularly beautiful in autumn, when the larches turn golden-yellow.
