This hike offers birds-eye views of Saas-Fee and its glacial surroundings from all angles. The trail begins at the Hannig cable car station (2350m) and leads towards the Gletscher Lake (1910m). After only a few minutes, hikers pass the cascading waterfalls of the frigid Fee-Vispa River. Continue on numerous steep sections towards the Plattjen Restaurant, from where the Plattjen cable car upper station is only 30 minutes away.
