Jakobsweg Graubünden

Alp Etzliboden and door to the Innerschweiz - Central Switzerland. The Bristenstock slopes are rough, yet the language of the mountain farmers soft and melodious. After Bristen, a steep descent through the shady Kärstelenschlucht gorge, with views of the Gotthard transit route, leads to Amsteg.
