Discovering Switzerland: Snow-shoe Hiking in Leukerbad

Leukerbad. Located in the Valais region (a region famous for its high consumption of wine and great skiing areas), Leukerbad is famous for two additional things: thermal springs and a corrupt mayor who managed to completely bankrupt and scandalize the city. The mayor has now been changed, however the city is still licking its financial scars (..according to the rumors the old mayor has hidden away approx. 30 M CHF… a pretty sad story indeed). Besides this story the area is beautiful – and definitely worth a visit! If you ever pass by – rent some snow shoes and go out for a hike! IMG_20140316_110840 IMG_20140316_213755 IMG_20140316_214122IMG_20140315_233412IMG_20140317_185157
