Kleinwalsertal planned a hike.
February 10, 2020
The round trip from Bödmen over the Geißhorn and the Kemptner Köpfle is unforgettable in many ways. Over a total length of over 20 kilometers, you have impressive views - with a little luck you can even see one or the other ibex.You start your tour at around 1,200 meters in the Gemstelboden, from where you climb - always along the idyllic Gemstelbach - steadily, but not too steeply at first. In hairpin bends and through mountain pines, past a gorge, one or two alpine pastures and a few places secured with wire rope, you hike there until sooner or later you start the summit on the 2,366 meter high Geißhorn. From up here you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the surrounding mountains Liechelkopf, Angererkopf, Elfer and Zwölfer, the Lechquellen Mountains and the Allgäu main ridge.The next - this time short - climb to the second summit of the day will soon start over the saddle and past the Mindelheimerhütte: the Kemptner Köpfle also gives you a breathtaking view with its proud 2,191 meters. But be careful: here you have to "climb" the last few meters.After the well-deserved breather you start your descent. Over the Kemptner Scharte, curves covered with serpentines lead you down into the Wildental. The narrow path winds through a steeply sloping boulder field, which is why you need to be sure-footed.Finally you reach the Wildental by a wide gravel path, from where you can either get back to Bödmen by bus or on foot.
