The hiking tour’s highlight is the crossing of the Sätteli Ridge between Tällistock and Sättelistöckleni. While the gentle ascent from Engstlenalp opens up magnificent vistas of the Melchsee region, on the descent to the Tälli Restaurant and Mountain House, the Gadmen Valley and the historic Susten Pass road come into view. Here the Gadmer Dolomites present themselves in all their imposing glory.
The use of hydroelectric power in the Grimsel and Susten area commenced in 1925 with the founding of the Kraftwerke Oberhasli AG (Oberhasli AG power plants). In several stages, an impressive facility came into being that comprises eight dams and nine power plants, generating electricity for 1.2 million people.
