Roughly 600m downhill on steep terrain, then a suspension bridge to cross: physical fitness and a head for heights are a must on this demanding route!

From the Fiescheralp mountain station, head east to Lake Märjelensee via Salzgäb and Oberes Tälli (through the illuminated tunnel). Once you reach the Gletscherstube mountain restaurant, follow the path via Märjelenwang and Stock down to the Burghütte mountain hut and on to the Aspi-Titter suspension bridge. This section of the route is relatively demanding and steep – you’ll need to watch your step. By this point you’ll have covered an altitude difference of roughly 600 metres. You’ll then need a head for heights to get across the suspension bridge. Once you reach the other side, continue downhill via Obflie, Ried and Gasse to Bellwald village centre. From there, take the cable car down to Fürgangen and the train back to Fiesch.

Author’s recommendation

You’ll deserve a rest in the Burghütte after tackling the steep descent! With a little luck, you might even spot an ibex through your binoculars.
