Hint

Intro

The Gauli Glacier is a valley glacier in the eastern Bernese Alps. It is about 6 km long and averages 1 km in width. The exciting two-day tour leads across Schrätteren Alp to Mattenalpsee, continues to the Gauli Hut, to the Chammliegg lookout, and passes some waterfalls later.

Description

Starting from the Innertkirchen post office, the tour begins in a damp spruce and sycamore forest where the first steps lead up to Schrätteren Alp. The tour continues up another steep section to the Mattenalpsee reservoir, and to get to the Gauli Hut, you have to cross a moor landscape.

The second day continues with the Chammliegg lookout. On this section, the hikers have to be surefooted and without fear of heights because going up to the Gauli Glacier means a bit of climbing. Accompanied by the breathtaking waterfalls of the Ürbach, the trail continues across alpine grasslands back to the Mattenalpsee. Take the same trail to get back to the starting point.

Another exciting piece of information: The crash of a DC-3 Dakota in November 1946 resulted in the first high-mountain rescue operation from the air, which made news around the world and permanently changed tourism in the Alps. It was the birth of the alpine air rescue services.

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
