This not particularly easy mountain tour begins at the mountain station of the Plattjen cableway (Saas Fee). The route leads up the mountain on a magnificent hiking trail towards Brittania hut. You reach the edge of the Chessjen glacier by passing under the Mittaghorn and Egginer. The crossing is not difficult, nevertheless, you must be careful at all times when you are on a glacier. From Brittania hut the descent leads first of all in the direction of Egginerjoch. The challenging descent to Saas Fee follows. The route is partially quite difficult to find through numerous rock falls. However, the village of Saas Fee remains visible at all times.
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.
