Wasserläufe der Chalzina Sura-Quelle mit roten Ablagerungen begrenzt durch schwarze Algen
The Chalzina Sura spring is located in the Val Chalzina near a small bridge. A source is clearly visible right next to the stream.

Description

Seeing a mineral spring so close to the village in its natural state is fascinating. The mineral water turns the surroundings into a bright orange. With the changing vegetation, the Chalzina Sura spring always takes on a slightly different appearance, which is why visits are worthwhile throughout the year.

Since there is no spring tapping, the water cannot be tasted.
