Migration of the sheep 2011 – Val Senales

3. June 2011 | Residence Kurz      

Migration of the sheep - Val SenalesThe people of the Schnals valley are very attached to their country and to their old traditions and one of the most spectacular of these is the migratory procession of thousands of sheep which takes place twice a year.

For hundrets of years now, flocks of something like 4,000 sheep from the Vinschgau and Schnals valley have climbed up over the 2,857 mt. high Hochjoch and the 3,019 mt. Niederjoch in the middle of June to reach the high alpine pastures of the Venter valley in nearby Austria which have been owned by Schnals valley farmers for centuries.
Shepherds, drovers and sheep dogs accompany the animals on their two-day march over 44 km. up to an altidude of some 3,200 metres and then down 1,800 mt. on the other side, crossing numerous snow-fields, rocky outdrops, steep slopes and slippery ice on the Alpenhauptkamm.

11th June 2011
The first sheep leave from Vernagt at about 4a.m. while the second part of the flock, ewes with lambs, starts a little later.
11th June 2011
The sheep set out from Kurzras at around 6p.m.
