Planning a Tour. Climbing the Mountains.

Before preparing a memorable tour it is important to plan ahead, take weather reports and the condition of the routes into consideration, collect all information on the chosen tour and, of course, to acquire a complete set of mountain gear.

Climbers are particularly prudent and thoughtful. Planning and preparing a climb are as important as the execution. Taking into account other climbers on the same mountain is as much a concern for them as the protection of untouched nature.

Belalp-Riederalp suspended bridge

The connection between Belalp and Riederalp. For many decades, the Belalp – Riederalp trail passed only over the Aletsch glacier. Even small livestock was taken across to the other side of the glacier in this way. Metal ladders were later required on account of the shrinkage of the glacier, and today a suspended bridge crosses the ice-free gorge. Walking time 4.5h.

Trift Bridge - A Spectacular Pedestrian Bridge

Trift Bridge is one of the most spectacular pedestrian suspension bridges of the Alps. It is 100 meters high and 170 meters long, and is poised above the region of the Trift Glacier. Even reaching the bridge through the ravine by cable car is an adventure.
