"Rolling Stones"

The issue of climate change is affecting us more than ever. On this newly-designed circular hike at Randa you can find out more about how the Alpine regions are affected. Would you like to know how severely the glaciers have receded in recent years and whether the increased rockfalls are directly related to this? The ZERMATTERS mountain guides Bruno Jelk and Markus Sarbach will tell you about the effects of climate change and about the skills people in the Matter Valley have acquired to cope with the resulting natural hazards.
