The hike connecting Gspon to Saas Grund is an all-time favorite among persons who know this area well. It is part of the 'Great Walser Trail' which traces the historic West-East migration pattern of the Walser. High above the gorge that houses the babbling Saaser Vispa, the trail is mostly just above the tree-line. Because of this, it offers wonderful views of the glaciers of the mighty Mischabel range.
The challenging mountain tour leads all around Mittaghorn mountain and around Egginer. You will hike right through huge screes strewn with boulders and debris left behind when a glacier melted, alpine meadows and even an actual glacier. At 3,000 meters, Brittania hut is the highest point of the route. The views of the Saas mountain world are simply stunning. Fourthousand meter giants as far as the eye can reach.
