The Bhutan Bridge spans the river Illbach in the Pfyn-Finges forest. Measuring 134 metres in length and festooned with prayer flags, the footbridge links the German-speaking and French-speaking regions of Valais. The structure lies on various hiking trails that explore the geological site of the Illgraben, dubbed the Grand Canyon of Valais.
