Hint

Intro

The two-hour hike from the Gemmi Pass around the magical Daubensee lake gives hikers the chance to recharge their batteries.

Description

The hike starts at the Gemmi Pass above Leukerbad and continues to the beautiful Daubensee lake at 2,200m. Take the time to enjoy your natural surroundings. The peaceful atmosphere around the lake is very relaxing. You can either walk around Daubensee lake or do the classical hike past the lake to Kandersteg, or in the opposite direction from Kandersteg to Leukerbad.

The Shepherds’ Festival takes place by Daubensee lake on the last day of July each year. The shepherds arrive with their sheep in the morning. The animals are held in check until  “Gläck”, a mixture of bran and salt, has been spread. This is a really tasty treat for sheep. The 800 sheep then storm down the steep slopes. This traditional festival celebrates the close relationship between the Valaisians and Bernese.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
