Usually you hear the sound of the cow-bells before the Alpine pasture has even come into view. And once the lush green meadows emerge from behind the last of the trees, it’s like balm on the spirit of every tired walker. In the lodges, often heated by traditional wood-burning stoves, you can get home-made cheese and bacon almost everywhere. And should you choose to enjoy a picnic high up there in the evening sun, you will have the sense that you can rarely be this close to heaven.
