Starting at Mörel-Filet station, make the short climb up to the main road and continue eastwards to the bridge, where you’ll cross from Mörel to Filet. The path then turns west, passing the district of Pfäwi before climbing through Lägundwald forest and continuing to Tunetschalp via the hamlet of Zen Achru. From the picturesque mountain pasture, follow the path that takes you across the Tunetschgraben. The medium-difficulty hike continues through Mattwald forest, uphill to Termen village square, the destination of the hike. For the return journey, take the bus to Brig and from there the train to Mörel-Filet.

Author’s recommendation

A small path that branches off before Pfäwi leads to a drainage tunnel of the Mörel hydropower plant. There is a wonderful view of Mörel-Filet to enjoy here.
