Lötschental Tourismus planned a hike.

    The first half of this impressive hike first leads you from the Fafleralp, always along the northern flank of the valley up to the Anenhütte. The path is sometimes quite technical and especially steep in the upper part.

    Past the Anenhütte you hike a bit to the Anenseeli, which is the turning point of the tour. Soon you will reach the Peter Tscherrig Anenhütte again. Here you can recharge your batteries for the steep descent towards Fafleralp (an overnight stay in the Anenhütte is also possible).

    The Anenhütte was rebuilt in 2008 and is located in the middle of a fantastic high mountain landscape. In the background, the jagged ice masses of the Anen Glacier pile up and stretch as a blue and white ribbon down to the Lang Glacier. This is around 100 meters lower than the hut. Your gaze wanders over the cracks and up to the Lötschenlücke. The panorama from the terrace of the Anenhütte over the whole Lötschental is fantastic.

    On the second half of this hike, the trail leads you steeply down to Lonza with wonderful views of the Lang glacier. On the other side of the valley, a path finally winds its way back to Fafleralp. This tour is also recommended in the opposite direction.
