Joy of the Alps.

In the morning light, it is worth letting your eyes wander into the distance over the Gastlosen, the Plaine-Morte glacier plateau and as far as the Valais Alps. The walking trail head west on a pleasant climb across Alpine meadows and along the Bäderalp. We walk around Mt. Bäderhore via the northern flank and continue past Alp Rieneschli to the Reidig Rift Valley. Although it is literally a rift valley, because at the top it is still a small, wild, romantic valley whereas towards the bottom it increasingly becomes a basin with cliffs rising to the left and right. In Chlus there is an inviting barbecue area with wood where you can grill sausages. From the Tauben Valley, a bubbling rivulet accompanies us to Boltigen.

Highlights:

  • Letting your eyes wander over the Gastlosen, the Plaine-Morte glacier plateau
  • Get some cheese at the Bäderalp
  • Side trip to Mt. Bäderhore (2,009 m a.s.l.)
  • A rest above Schwarzenmatt under a group of centuries-old mountain-maples
