Wildly romantic Lötschental
The Lötschental has much more to offer than frightening carnival masks and ski passes on the Laucherenalp. It is the rear of the valley that particularly stands out on account of its magnificent mountain landscapes.
Fafleralp - Anenhütte - Anensee - Fafleralp
Glacier-capped mountain summits, natural brooks that gurgle down from all directions into the valley below, tiny mountain lakes with crystal clear water and succulent alpine meadows spattered with a large diversity of flowers are just some of the sights to behold. As the main river in the valley, the Lonza carries particularly large volumes of water on hot summer days. Ice melting on the Langgletscher (Lang glacier) is sufficient to cause the river to swell mightily and turn into a spectacular torrent.
At the outset, the route keeps to the right side of the valley (looking towards the river) as it leads from the Fafleralp up to the Anenhütte (Anen hut). Parts of the route are quite difficult and, especially in the upper section, also challengingly steep. The Anensee constitutes the turning point for the hike. A trail with wonderful views of the Langgletscher (Lang glacier) leads steeply down to the Lonza river. Eventually, a path back to the Fafleralp winds its way along the opposing side of the valley.
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
