Fafleralp - Schwarzsee - Tellialp - Weritzstafel - Lauchernalp
The mountain walk begins on the Fafleralp and keeps following the signs for Lauchernalp. A generally narrow path winds along the right-hand side of the valley towards the west. Passing the picturesque Schwarzsee, you come to the Tellialp. Then there is a short climb, before the last section of the tour runs steadily downhill from the hamlet of Weritzstafel to the Lauchernalp. Finally, you go back down by cable-car to the valley, where there is a regular bus service between Goppenstein and the Fafleralp.
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.
