The landscape around Lake Dauben is sparsely grown and of austere beauty. Enormous rocks tower to the left and right of the vast and open valley basin. But the flowers on the Spittelmatte plain down below present a riot of colors. Terrific!

The tour actually starts and ends in Leukerbad. Take the cable car from Leukerbad to Gemmi. At the valley-station a trail runs along Lake Dauben to Schwarenbach. A wide and technically simple path leaves plenty of space to enjoy the scenery. From Schwarenbach the route leads to Spittelmatte, the turning point of the tour. An ascent on the other side takes you back to Schwarenbach. Finally, the tour returns along the same path to the Gemmi Pass.
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.
