On Griesalp at the farthest end of the Kiental you are rewarded with a magical world that opens up for you – and it is no coincidence that this is part of the "Swiss Alps" Unesco World Heritage. It is the starting point for numerous mountain hiking tours and alpine trails. Some of these run over the top of Hohtürli Pass to Lake Oeschinen in seven hours.
The first stage leads over Bundalp to the top of Hohtürli Pass into the unique world of glaciers along the northern flank of Blüemlisalp. The second stage runs down to the paradise of Lake Oeschinen, where the cable railway to Kandersteg awaits.
The pass route runs along the seam between the glaciers and the green Pre-Alps and offers plenty of variety. In addition, those who overnight in the SAC Blüemlisalphütte immersed in an absolute alpine experience and are spoiled even more - fine wines from the Valais and Italy are served to accompany a wholesome three course meal.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
