Cows Homecoming to Schüpfheim

Panorama taken at the 10th annual Entlebucher Alpabfahrt (Descent from the Alps) at the end of September 2013 in Schlüpfheim, Switzerland. 

Every year, farmer families take their cows into the mountains in spring and they return in the fall.  Traditionally, different families came back at different dates depending on the weather and the pastures, but for the last 10 years, several families have co-ordinated when they return and the date is announced in advance so visitors can join in the festivities.

The event of going up and down the mountains has always been filled with tradition. In the panorama you can see some of the traditional clothing and decoration of the cows.
