Hint

Intro

The king’s stage over the 2778m-high Hohtürli. Rewarding detour to the Blümlisalphütte and eternal glacier ice. Down over moraine to beautiful, deep-blue Oeschinensee backed by steep cliffs; one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the Alps.

Description

On Griesalp at the farthest end of the Kiental you are rewarded with a magical world that opens up for you – and it is no coincidence that this is part of the "Swiss Alps" Unesco World Heritage. It is the starting point for numerous mountain hiking tours and alpine trails. Some of these run over the top of Hohtürli Pass to Lake Oeschinen in seven hours.

The first stage leads over Bundalp to the top of Hohtürli Pass into the unique world of glaciers along the northern flank of Blüemlisalp. The second stage runs down to the paradise of Lake Oeschinen, where the cable railway to Kandersteg awaits.

The pass route runs along the seam between the glaciers and the green Pre-Alps and offers plenty of variety. In addition, those who overnight in the SAC Blüemlisalphütte immersed in an absolute alpine experience and are spoiled even more - fine wines from the Valais and Italy are served to accompany a wholesome three course meal.

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
