Droving of sheep

Droving of sheep
Certain traditions such as transhumance, that is, droving animals up to their summer pastures in May or June and back down again in September or early October, go back thousands of years. One spectacular example is the droving of sheep in the Val Schnalstal valley across the border to their summer grazing grounds in the Venter Valley in Austria. Some 3,500 sheep make the arduous two-day journey across glaciers, then back again in mid September.

The droving of livestock from the high pastures back down to their winter quarters in the valley in September and early October is called the 'Almabtrieb'.
