Idyllically situated in the forest, the San Jon Dadaint spring rises not far from the hiking trail to the Lischana hut.

Description

The main source of the mineral spring is about 15 meters above the Lischana stream in a small area. There are other pools around it. The highlight is the brownish spring tufa a little below, which with its stair-like appearance makes the San Jon Dadaint spring something very special.

Since there is no catchment, the water cannot be tasted.
