Tips

  • Alessia

    If you come from Hohbalm, and have just crossed the mountain ridge, this is where the panorama of the Aletsch Glacier begins to open up.
    Vice versa, coming from the glacier, it is one of the last points where the latter is visible.

    The path is beautifully guided through the Bettmerhorn flank! Highly recommended.

    Guaranteed wow effect and the desire to stop and contemplate the landscape and take a photo at every step since the entire path allows you to have a constant view of the glacier.
    The surface is mainly composed of a narrow dirt path, with a couple of more difficult and steep climbs on rock, but nothing that even a beginner cannot do.
    Route always well marked with white / red paint.

    About halfway through a puppet lying on a gate holds a sign that says (in German) "attention! Crossing prohibited".
    It comes to believe that he stayed there for folklore, because before deciding to pass it I saw hikers coming from the other side and I asked if it was safe to continue and everything seemed fine.
