It is worth taking the cable car up to the Bettmerhorn or Eggishorn if only to get a sense of just how colossal the Great Aletsch Glacier really is.
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.
