The Gommer ridge path enables you to appreciate the landscapes of Oberwallis in their full grandeur. The ridge path leads along the sunny slope of Gom mountain without ever crossing the road. Dense forests and sparse meadows predominate. Picturesque villages and hamlets are visible in the valley. And every so often the prominent summit of Weisshorn can be seen in the distance.

Description

Bellwald – Wiler – Walibach – Bächital - Münster

The "King's Hike" begins in Bellwald. Bellwald is located on a sunny terrace, high above Fiesch. From the cableway's mountain station the trail first leads along the road in the direction of Wiler and Münster. Slightly further along, the route branches to the right and then leads down to Wiler. But the main direction of the route is always Münster. Walibach is reached via a relatively lengthy ascent, during which wonderful views of the central Goms peak are revealed. After Walibach the route leads via Bächital to the main town of the Goms region, Münster. The picturesque town is the last station on this gorgeous hike.
