Shepherd’s Weekend

A Wooly Spectacle
On the last weekend of August, sheep are herded together on their summer pasture “Inners Aletschji” and are lead back to the Belalp. The most beautiful animals are awarded and decorated with flowers. On Saturday evening, the descent of the 1200 Valais Blacknose Sheep is celebrated, before the shepherds select their animals from the huge herd and bring them back to the valley.
