Always on the last weekend in August, the inhabitants of Naters celebrate the well-known "Schäful" on the Belalp. For the sheep, which have spent the summer in the Inner Aletschji, it's back down to the valley. The guests can expect a traditional program with yodel mass, fine Valais specialties and lots of country music, which invites to dance.
The sheep are driven from the Aletschji up to the Aletschbord by the Sanners on Saturday. Once they have reached the top, they will be warmly welcomed by the numerous guests. Later in the afternoon, the animals are driven to the Färricha. These are walled sheep enclosures. On Sunday, the sheep are separated so that each farmer can see if all his sheep have made it back.
