Ridge Hike over the Justi Valley

Wanderungen – The views are unto themselves on this challenging ridge hike connecting the Niederhorn (1949 m.a.s.l.), easily accessible by chairlift, with Mt. Gemmenalphorn (2061 m.a.s.l.) and which veers down towards Habkern. The snowy peaks of the Bernese Alps vie with the karst cliffs of Hohgant and the Prealpine Region.
